PSRC's project tracking program helps ensure the region's federal funds are put to work to improve transportation.
PSRC’s project tracking program was created in 2000 to monitor the progress of projects awarded PSRC’s federal funds. Over time, these policies have successfully resulted in PSRC funds being utilized more efficiently and with fewer delays, ensuring the region continues to be successful and no funds are lost.
The Project Tracking Policies provide sponsors with PSRC FHWA funds awarded to a right of way or construction phase the opportunity to apply for either a 45-day or 1-year extension if they do not anticipate making their June 1st obligation deadline. Extension requests are due to PSRC by February 15th. Access to the 2022 Extension Form and instructions can be found below.
Regions across the state are required to achieve annual delivery targets for the use of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds. If the delivery targets are not met, regions may lose some portion of their federal funds. PSRC has achieved its target each year since the statewide delivery was established.
2019 Project Delivery Summit
On December 4, 2019 PSRC hosted a summit on delivering projects with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds. State and federal partners provided guidance on the requirements of delivering federally funded projects. Staff from the City of Kent and the City of Tacoma provided local perspectives related to their experiences delivering federally funded projects. Summit participants could attend in-person or via webinar. A recording of the webinar, presentation slides and questions and answers from the event are available below.
