The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) ihas announced an open application period for the fiscal year (FY) 2018 High Risk Rural Road (HRRR) program, with an estimated budget of approximately $6,000,000. This amount may be subject to revisions.
Local agencies are allowed to submit more than one project for consideration. Federal safety funds shall not exceed $600,000 per project or a maximum amount of $2,000,000 per Local Agency for the fiscal year (including any selected FY 2018 HSIP projects). Any non-selected projects submitted under this HRRR call for projects will be automatically rolled over to the general FY 2018 HSIP safety call for projects. Selected HRRR projects are to be obligated in FY 2018; the Local Agency will not be allowed to delay a selected HRRR to a different fiscal year.
