SKATS FY 2021-2026 Transportation Improvement Program
TRANSPORTATION PROJECT APPLICATION EVALUATION
Salem Keizer Area Transportation Study (SKATS) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) received 14 applications for transportation projects within the SKATS MPO boundary for federal funds for the federal fiscal year (FY) 2021-2026 Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). The estimated cost of the 14 projects is more than $44.5 million including a request for $38.5 million in federal funds. There will be approximately $15 million in federal funds available for new projects in FY 2022, 2023 and 2024 and an additional $11 million available for projects ready for contract in the FY 2025 -2026 illustrative years; although, it is up to the Policy Committee’s discretion to program funds for those years. Projects eligible for funding must be within the SKATS MPO boundary and be included in, or consistent with, the 2015-2035 Regional Transportation Systems Plan (RTSP) or the 2019-2043 RTSP (when it is adopted). Applicants must be a tax-funded public agency that can enter into a contract with ODOT, with some restrictions, to be eligible to receive funding. A minimum 10.27 percent match is required.
The projects applications will be evaluated and scored according to the criteria in the application instructions, resulting in an initial ranking for the SKATS Policy Committee’s review.
Project Summaries and Applications for each of the proposed projects are available below. Application instructions are also available below.
Final adoption of the TIP is expected by May 2020.
