* We posted RTP apportionments at

* Other FHWA FY 2006 Apportionments are at, scroll down to N4510.564 through N4510.576. Transportation Enhancement apportionments are NOT calculated yet because we still need a final Appropriations Act to calculate the final Equity Bonus amounts that get attributed to STP.


I am attaching an Excel spreadsheet with RTP obligations 1993-2005. Please check for accuracy. Some States obviously don't have accurate figures, because total obligations exceed total allocations and apportionments: Kansas, Montana, North Dakota, and Washington. However, that's what we have in Apportionment Notices and in FHWA's Fiscal Management Information System. These figures need to get corrected: you should not be able to obligate more than you have available (unless, perhaps, your State transferred funds from another Federal-aid highway program category: if that is the case, please let me know).

Updated Bicycle and Pedestrian obligations are posted at


We updated the State RTP list at Please check for accuracy, and please provide corrections to and to
