Request for Candidate 2017 Priority Transportation Projects

Each year the TPO is responsible for developing a list of Priority Transportation Projects and submitting the list to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for consideration during development of the Five Year Work Program for Polk County.

The TPO accepts applications and project proposals from local governments for the Transportation Alternatives Program (TA), Complete Streets (CS), Multi-Use Trail (MUT), Regional Multi-Use Trail (RMUT), and Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) projects as a method of prioritizing projects included in the annual TPO Priority Transportation Projects list.  These projects are based on the goals and objectives of the TPO’s adopted Momentum 2040 and are intended to promote safety, enhance mobility and reduce congestion, for all users of the transportation system.
