Last summer, Congress passed a new surface transportation bill which the President signed into law on July 6th, 2012. The new law is titled Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).
MAP-21 is a 2-year surface transportation bill. It provides level funding for federal highway, transit and safety programs through September, 2014.
MAP-21 creates a streamlined, performance-based, and multimodal program to address the many challenges facing the U.S. transportation system. These challenges include improving safety, maintaining infrastructure condition, reducing traffic congestion, improving efficiency of the system, freight movement, protecting the environment, and reducing delays in project delivery.
Although the new legislation was signed into law during the summer of 2012, the bulk of MAP-21 provisions did not go into effect until October, 2012.
Staff at the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) are in the process of reviewing the Act as well as Federal guidance and Federal rulemakings to determine program implications.
Updates and guidance from CTDOT regarding MAP-21 program implications will be posted on this webpage in an effort to coordinate with and inform the various planning regions, transit districts, general public, and other stakeholders.
