State DOT Oversight of Facility Projects

State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) continue to play a variety of roles when administering Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant programs. Of particular importance is the implementation and oversight of facility-type projects, both in initial construction and rehabilitation. DOTs indicated the need to have a guidance tool to assist with the implementation, oversight, and on-going monitoring role of construction projects, which often involve complex and often difficult-to-understand federal requirements. This report discusses the development of the guidebook in the following chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Project Approach; (3) Online Survey; (4) Research Team Knowledge from Prior Experience; and (5) Guidebook Development. An appendix contains the Online Survey Instrument.
