Local Project Delivery
What is a "local project?"
Generally, a project on a road or bridge owned/operated by a local government that is funded using state and/or federal money through the state Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
In conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) developed Publication 740, the Local Project Delivery Manual, which provides assistance to local project sponsors, project managers, and interested stakeholders in successfully delivering locally sponsored transportation projects.
Publication 740 DOES NOT ADDRESS PROJECTS USING LIQUID FUELS FUNDS.
Publication 740 also does not specifically address the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), but many of the same processes will apply. Please contact your local PennDOT district office if you are interested in securing funding or have questions related to the Transportation Alternatives Program.
Reimbursement Agreement System (RAS)
The Reimbursement Agreement System (RAS) was developed to provide an electronic means for Reimbursement Agreements to be processed. The RAS system reduces the processing time by automating the local reimbursement agreement approval and execution.
Customers can receive assistance from the local project coordinators (PDF) in the regional office near them.
