Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 36-16. State of Tribal Transportation Programs

Little information is available on organizational structure and capacity of tribal transportation programs nationwide. Programs include tribes that conduct maintenance, planning, and construction activities under PL 93-638, tribes that have developed plans and a proposed structure for a Tribal Department of Transportation, and tribes receiving direct services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The synthesis study will seek information from tribes on activities that are currently undertaken in transportation planning, project development, construction, safety, transit, and maintenance. Information will include current staffing for tribal governments and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and amount and source of funding for transportation program activities. Information may be used by tribal governments, and state, local, and federal agencies in determining state of tribal transportation program and steps needed to assist tribes in developing capacity to perform transportation related functions.
