An overview of the Urban Corridor Program.
The Urban Corridor Program is funded from the Transportation Improvement Account (TIA). In 1988 when the account was created, the Legislature recognized the need for multi-jurisdictional cooperation and partnerships with the business community. UCP projects are typically larger and often cross jurisdictional boundaries and require a great amount of cooperation.

The Urban Corridor Program receives 1.3 cents from the state's motor vehicle fuel tax. Approximately 20 percent of the funds going to the Urban Corridor Program is used for debt service payments on the $100 million in bonds sold over the last decade.

Program Specific Information
The distinguishing characteristic of the Urban Corridor Program is large scale projects that require a greater amount of local contribution.  General criteria include:
  • Eligible agencies are cities with a population greater than 5,000, urban areas within counties, and Transportation Benefit Districts (TBD).
  • Projects must be consistent with state, regional and local transportation plans.
  • The local match requirement is determined by the city's valuation, or in the case of counties, by its road levy valuation.
    Minimum local match ranges from 10 to 20 percent.
  • Funds are distributed across three regions based on arterial lane miles and population.
