The Surface Transportation Program - Urban (STP-U) allocates federal funds to complete a variety of improvements to federal-aid-eligible roads and streets in urban areas.

The objective of STP-U is to improve federal aid eligible highways within urban areas. Projects must meet federal and state requirements. Communities are eligible for funding on roads functionally classified as major collector or higher.

For 2022-2027 program development, total funds available for the STP-Urban Program are $92,526,592 broken down as follows:

These amounts are based on anticipated federal local program levels for fiscal years 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026 and 2027.
