3. PA Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Program (TASA) Regionally Selected & Statewide Recommended Projects

The PA Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Program (TASA) is a  competitive federal program established for projects that contribute to alternative transportation projects, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities. The two-year Pennsylvania TASA program provided approximately $8 million TASA funds for projects in the DVRPC region and at least $18+ million statewide. These are the regional selections and statewide recommendations of that program.

4. Adoption of Regional Safety Targets to Satisfy MPO Requirements Under the Federal Transportation Performance Management (TPM) Process

Roadway Safety is part of the overall Transportation Performance Management (TPM) program, which FHWA defines as a strategic approach that uses system information to make investment and policy decisions to achieve national            performance goals. The Safety Performance Management (Safety PM) Final Rule supports the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), as it establishes safety performance measure requirements for the purpose of carrying out the HSIP and to assess fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. The Board is being asked to adopt the regional safety targets and agrees to plan and program projects that contribute toward meeting or exceeding the targets.

5. DVRPC Regional Trails Program – Additional Phase 8 Grant Awards

DVRPC staff will present two timely multi-use trail projects recommended for funding using unspent Regional Trails Program balances. The Regional Trails Program is supported by the William Penn Foundation.
