FY 2018 Transportation Alternative (TA) Funding Awardees 




In November 2017, the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization  (MPO)  approved FY 2018 Transportation Alternatives (TA) awards for nine (9) projects totaling  $1.08 million   in Tennessee and one (1) project totaling $198,400 in Mississippi. These funds will catalyze the construction of projects meant to address safety and accessibility. The Memphis MPO awards its allocated TA funds through a competitive application process.  TA is a federal transportation funding source that includes on and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure programs aimed to increase non-driver access to public transportation, transit stop amenities, greenways and trails, and more.  
 
Visit the Memphis MPO's Transportation Alternatives Webpage to find out more about the Transportation Alternatives Program and additional information about the awarded FY 2018 projects
