1. APPORTIONMENTS POSTED

* We posted RTP apportionments at www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/rectrails/recfunds.htm.

* Other FHWA FY 2006 Apportionments are at www.fhwa.dot.gov/legsregs/directives/notices.htm, 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.


2. RTP OBLIGATIONS

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 www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/bikeped/bipedfund.htm.


3. CONTACT LISTS

We updated the State RTP list at www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/rectrails/rtpstate.htm. Please check for accuracy, and please provide corrections to jonathan.leclere@fhwa.dot.gov and to mactrail@aol.com.
