The Nebraska Department of Roads Transportation Enhancement Program provides funding to local, state, and regional governmental entities to build and restore transportation infrastructure.
Examples of transportation
infrastructure projects that are eligible under this program include
non-motorized facilities for pedestrians and bicycles, development of
scenic byways, restoration of historic transportation facilities, and
other projects directly related to the historic, current, or future
ORIGINS OF THE ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM
ISTEA expired in 1997, but the initial success of the program resulted in the reauthorization of enhancement funding in the 1998 passage of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21). To implement the federal act, the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR) established the Nebraska Transportation Enhancement Program.
TEA-21 expired September 30, 2003. However, three extensions to TEA-21 have been signed by the President. These extensions allow states to continue to solicit, rank, and select Transportation Enhancement Projects.
