Public Comment Sought For the Transportation Alternatives Program

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is seeking comment from the public on its Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) as authorized by the most recent Federal Transportation Funding Act - the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). The Transportation Alternatives Program redefines the former Transportation Enhancement (TE) activities and consolidates these eligibilities with the Safe Routes to School and Recreational Trails Programs. The Transportation Alternatives program builds upon the legacy of the TE program by expanding travel choices, strengthening the local economy, improving the quality of life, and protecting the environment. Approved TAP projects would be programmed for construction as funding becomes available.
 
            A copy of this press release and a link to information pertaining to the TAP projects’ background and eligibility requirements which includes a listing of the potential funding, are available for public review and comment on the world web at:
