INCOG is seeking to amend the FFY 2010 Transportation Improvement Program to add projects to the Recreational Trails, Bridge, Surface Transportation, and National Highway System programs.The projects include a recreational trail in Bently Park in Bixby, preliminary construction work for a bridge over the Verdigris on SH-66, and preliminary construction work for a bridge over Euchee Creek on US64.The total federal funds are $993,560 and the total local match is $30,890.Project details are included in the attachment.These projects are consistent with the Regional Transportation Plan, Destination 2030, and staff recommends approval.

4. ARRA Project Selection Process

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has recently notified INCOG of the potential availability of residual American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds for the Tulsa Transportation Management Area.Based on ODOTís bids through September and estimates for projects to be bid in November and early 2010, INCOG estimates that approximately $2.5 million or more in unobligated funds will be available.These funds must be authorized by the Federal Highway Administration before March 2010 or the funds will be rescinded and redistributed according to the law.

Staff will brief the committee regarding criteria for project selection based on the targeted equity distribution, previous ARRA funding, priority of previous projects submitted for funding, readiness to proceed, the intent to advance the environmental clearance for additional projects to be funded, and a target of selecting projects at the INCOG Board of Directors meeting, December 10, 2009.
