The Department’s Intersection Improvement Program provides funds for projects in unincorporated areas and cities with less than 200,000 populations. (Cities with urbanized area population greater than 200,000 are eligible to receive STBGP funds through their Metropolitan Planning Organizations.)
Eligible projects include construction of new traffic signals, upgrade of existing traffic signals, intersection improvements, roundabouts, signal coordination, etc. The intersection must meet Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) signalization warrants to qualify for signalization. Projects are typically 80% Federal-aid and 20% match by local and/or State.
◆ $350,000 Maximum Federal-aid per project
◆ $87,500 Maximum State Match per project where the intersection consists entirely of state highways.
◆ $43,750 Maximum State Match per project where the intersection consists of state and local roadways.
The local agency is responsible for 100% cost of right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation. ArDOT designs, awards the construction contract, and inspects each project as an eligible project expense. Eligible sponsors can request this funding at any time.
