Does your community have a desire to build pedestrian or bicycle facilities, provide urban beautification, or rehabilitate a train depot? The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration shares your interest in such enhancements and many more.
The Transportation Enhancement (TE) program was developed to enhance surface transportation activities by developing projects that go above and beyond what transportation departments typically do.
The TE program was made possible by Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), reauthorized in 1998 under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), and SAFETEA-LU re-authorization by the current U.S. congressional session.
