The New York State Touring Route Program provides $100 million in State funds to cities, towns and villages based on the total number of signed touring route miles for which such municipality has capital maintenance responsibility to support the construction and repair of highways, bridges, highway-railroad crossings, and other transportation facilities.

In order to be eligible for State Touring Route Capital reimbursement, the capital project must: (1) be undertaken by a municipality; (2) be for highway-related purposes; (3) have a service life of 10 years or more with normal maintenance; and (4) follow the State Touring Route Guidelines as outlined in this NYSDOT document.

This new state funding initiative is available for eligible expenditures incurred on or after April 1, 2021.
