An overview of the Small City Arterial Program.

The Small City Arterial Program was formally established by the Legislature in 1995. Projects preserve and improve TIB classified arterials consistent with local needs in cities with a population less than 5,000.

A TIB classified arterial must meet at least one of the following conditions to be eligible for TIB funding:

  • Paved streets connecting to other paved streets that are publically owned by the city or state
  • Must provide circulation within the network or provide access to at least 20 residentual units or equivalent trip generation
  • New streets and gravel streets may be classified as arterials if they should be paved based on serving significant traffic generators
