This presentation will highlight some of the features of the ISTEA Transportation Enhancement program in the state of Florida. Implementation of this program has been impacted by the fact that local governmental entities within the State have not been accustomed to working under federal regulations. In fact, there are almost as many different acquisition procedures as there are local governments within the state. Despite this environment, the State has had some success in carrying out the program. The six (6) year ISTEA apportionment for enhancement funds in Florida is $131 Million. Of this apportionment, $115 Million has been approved for 567 projects through March, 1997. The funds are distributed among various project phases with 72% or $83 Million for construction, 22% ($26 Million) for preliminary engineering a 6% ($7 million) for right of way. Project applications have covered all categories for which the funding is permitted to be used. However, the most popular projects by a large margin are bicycle and pedestrian paths.
