As part of the selection process for PSRC’s federal funds, prioritized contingency lists of projects are created in case additional funds become available prior to the next process.

Since 2016, approximately $27.5 million of PSRC’s federal fiscal year 2020 Federal Highway Administration funds have become available for distribution, due to funds returned from projects and federal allocations higher than estimates.

The Transportation Policy Board will act on the recommendation at its meeting on May 10, with final action by the Executive Board scheduled in June.

The policy board will also hear a briefing on the State Facilities Action Plan and an update on VISION 2050.  See the full agenda here and watch the meeting live on May 10, 9:30-11:30 a.m.
