STBG - Maintenance Work Eligiblity

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.
