STBG - Maintenance Work EligiblityMarch 28, 2017
Is maintenance work eligible with Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) funds?
General roadway maintenance work is not eliglble with STBG funds. You’ll want to note there’s a difference between what is considered “routine” and “preventative” maintenance. Preventative maintenance work (e.g. joint and shoulder is eligible rehab, seal coats, corrective grinding, etc.) of roads on the Federal-aid highway system is STBG eligible. This FHWA memo provides additional information regarding maintenance activities.
