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:

  • Serves as a logical extension of a county arterial or state highway into the corporate limits
  • Serves as a route connecting local generators such as schools, medical facilities, social centers, recreational areas, commercial centers or industrial sites
  • Acts as a bypass or truck route to relieve the central core area
