Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) Funding Now Available

Application period 9/17/2014 through 11/14/2014

The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking projects that could be funded with Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) funds.

The Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) allows local public agencies (LPA) to receive engineering assistance for studying traffic engineering problems. LPAs facing a traffic safety or operational problem can utilize the LPA On-Call Consultant List to perform a traffic study.

Typical traffic engineering related projects include:  corridor safety and/or operational analysis, intersection(s) safety and/or operational analysis, speed limit review, sign inventory, pedestrian/bike route analysis, parking issues, and other traffic studies, etc.

Local public agencies are reimbursed for eligible project costs at a rate of 80 percent with the local agency providing a 20-percent match.  Funds administered by MoDOT will provide 80 percent of the TEAP project costs, up to $8,000 per project. If the total cost is greater than $10,000, the local agency can pay more than 20 percent to complete the TEAP project, if desired.

Eligible projects must be able to be completed by fall of 2015.

Applications are due November 14, 2014 to the district LPA staff, with selected projects to be announced in January 2015.

For more information and applications, visit TEAP

For details on how to apply and the application process, please contact your local MoDOT LPA person: http://www.modot.org/business/manuals/LPAContacts.htm

Notification - LPA On-Call Consultant List

Local Agencies,

Beginning today, February 24, 2014, the new LPA On-Call Consultant List is available for your use.  The LPA On-Call Consultant List was created through a qualifications based selection process.  The process was administered by MoDOT and quality assurance was provided by Missouri ACEC and Missouri FHWA.  MoDOT together with Missouri’s Local Program Advisory Panel managed the consultant review and selections. 

  • LPA On-Call Consultant ListEffective  Monday, February 24, 2014
  • LPA Contact Information regarding consultant selections
  • DBE Goals – DBE goals will not be set on individual projects that utilize the on-call consultant list.  Consultants will be expected to use DBE subconsultants on these contracts to meet the statewide goal of 13.49%.  This programmatic approach is an opportunity for consultants to use innovative ways to meet this goal.  If the local program fails to meet the 13.49% goal, MoDOT will consider setting goals on each individual contract.
  • For more information on how to utilize the LPA On-Call Consultant List, see EPG 136.4.2.4.3
