Transportation Alternatives Program

This site will provide you with information on the program; downloadable forms and manuals; ongoing projects; and where to go for help.

The DOTD Transportation Alternative Program (DOTDTAP), previously known as Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP), is a Federally funded program administered through DOTD. The goal is to work toward building a more balanced transportation system that includes pedestrians and bicyclists as well as the motoring public. Eligible projects can include bicycle and pedestrian facilities, safe routes for non-drivers, conversion of abandoned railway corridors to trails, scenic turnouts, overlooks and viewing areas, archaeological activities, storm water mitigation, wildlife management, and community improvement activities. Community improvement activities can include outdoor advertising management, historic preservation and rehabilitation of historic transportation facilities and vegetation management.

The DOTDTAP personnel are available to provide assistance to anyone interested in applying for or those who already have an existing project. Our purpose is to help guide projects through the program guidelines in order to have a successful, working project once developed.
