Support to the Nonmotorized Pilot Program

This Interagency Agreement (IAA) allows the Volpe Center to continue related support begun under Project Plan Agreement HW3C last amended on July 27, 2007. HW3C initiated Volpe support to the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP), including for program management and technical support to FHWA, funded directly by FHWA and for support to the pilot communities for project level evaluation. There are four communities (Columbia, Missouri; Sheboygan County, Wisconsin; Marin County, California and Minneapolis, Minnesota) that are authorized $100 million by the NTPP to construct transportation infrastructure facilities, including sidewalks, bicycle lanes and trails that connect to transit stations, schools, residences, businesses, recreation areas and other activity centers. Under this IAA, the Volpe Center will continue working with the FHWA and the pilot communities to develop and implement a comprehensive technical approach to evaluate the results of investments made in the pilot communities and the overall results of the program as required to meet the Congressional reporting requirements. Although the Volpe Center will be responsible for specific technical tasks and deliverables, it will also provide flexible support to assist the FHWA in administering the program and to work collaboratively with the communities to develop and implement an evaluation process for this new and high profile national program. The Volpe Center will serve as a technical advisor to and member of the working group composed of staff leads from the four communities, the FHWA, the Rails to Trails Conservancy, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and other organizations involved with the program.
