Performance Review of the Local Government Cooperative Assistance Program Administered by the Department of Transportation , Report No. 94-29, February 1995

  • Most projects funded by the Program have been for improvements to local roads that are maintained by cities and counties, rather than roads within the State Highway System that are maintained by DOT. The projects have typically involved roadway construction, including expanding existing roads, adding new through-lanes, roadway reconstruction, and traffic operation improvements (e.g., adding turn lanes or traffic signals). Program grants have covered an average of 15% of the projects' costs. Local governments have contributed about $162 million for the projects in addition to the $29.2 million in DOT grants.
  • The Program duplicates other funding sources for these projects and should be eliminated.
