Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3 Grant Application

At the March 16, 2023 BPAC Meeting, Julieth Ortiz, Transportation Planner III in OakDOT’s Capital Finance Section, provided an overview of the Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3 Program, followed by an update of existing TDA-funded projects and a draft project list for fiscal year 2023-24. This year’s recommendation is to fund the design of two stairs and paths projects, including the Comstock stairs (#103) and stairs #206 (Trestle Glen). This item needs BPAC review for this TDA cycle. OakDOT is still ensuring that there is staff and contracting capacity to implement the proposed projects before committing to requesting funds this cycle.
