The "off-system" appropriation established by Section 219, Title 23 of the 1974 Federal Aid Highway Act has been endorsed by county and local government units, and notice of intent to use the 5-1/2 million dollar allocation for the improvements on rural roads in Ohio (not a part of the federal-aid system) was filed. The distribution of funds was based on the formula established for distribution of federal-aid secondary funds to each county. A schedule for submission of a statement of intent to participate in the program was set, and it was stressed that this was a one- year program and that the allocations cannot be built up for larger projects and later use. County engineers were assured that the projects would be handled with speed and a minimum of red tape. The factors which formed the bases for this assurance are listed. It was agreed that where the county design standards were adequate and where their application would not affect the safety of the project, the FHWA would approve the project on the basis of these county standards. Every local official is being urged to get involved in the program. It has been made clear that if the local authorities do not avail themselves of this first allocation, their grant would be distributed to other counties who could use the additional funds.
