Abstract: In 2003, the Virginia Department of Transportation developed a list of alternative transportation funding sources available to localities in Virginia. Alternative funding sources are defined as those that are not included in the annual interstate, primary, secondary, and urban allocations available through VDOT's Six-Year Improvement Program. The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, passed by the U.S. Congress in 2005, eliminated some of these programs and created new opportunities. Accordingly, the list of funding sources was updated based on information available as of December 2005. State and federal funding sources and programs, and their potential uses, are detailed in this report. In some cases, the program described does not provide money above the normal annual allocations but rather allows the allocations for the primary, secondary, or urban system to be used for bicycle and pedestrian projects, following the standard VDOT project development process, or road improvement projects that use a simplified design and construction process.
