FHWA, January 2014

This document provides guidance on the administration of the two State Infrastructure Bank (SIB) pilot programs that currently exist authorized by:

  • The National Highway System Designation Act of 1995, Section 35
  • The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) of 1998, section 1511

The document provides a summary discussion of stewardship practices for managing the SIB pilot programs based on legislative requirements, existing SIB Guidance, and a survey conducted of all FHWA Division Offices regarding program use by the States. It also includes examples of best practices related to the SIB pilot programs identified in a 2011 review of the program, together with tools that may aid FHWA Division Offices and the States in carrying out their stewardship responsibilities.
