04 April 30, 2013 Technical Advisory CommitteeCOMM-TAC-00018 Lanes, and Truck Climbing Lanes that are not capacity increasing ■ Transit Projects (including Bus expansion purchases, new transit centers) ■ Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Programs ■ Travel Demand Management (toll facilities) ■ Outreach and Rideshare Activities ■ Telecommuting ■ Alternative Fuel Programs ■ Transportation Activities in an Approved State Implementation Plan (SIP) or Maintenance Plan The Commission has a policy in place that sets aside 25% of CMAQ and STP funding specifically for Grade Separations. Therefore, this call for projects will not include Grade Separation projects. 6. Criteria: Points will be assigned for each criterion and will range from Ito 10 depending on the criterion. Regional Significance - Up to 5 points for ADT, Up to 5 points for regional system Local agencies will provide Average Daily Traffic (ADT) counts and discuss the regional significance of the project. Projects on the Congestion Management Program (CMP) system, Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMF) network, and National Highway System (NHS), and that are multi -jurisdictional will qualify for more points. One point will be given for each system or network and an additional two points will be given for multi -jurisdictional projects. For example, if a project is on a TUMF network and NHS network, it will receive 2 points. Scoring for ADT is as follows: ADT above 20,000 = 1 ADT above 30,000 = 2 ADT above 40,000 = 3 ADT above 50,000 = 4 ADT above 60,000 = 5 Project Readiness — Up to 10 points This criterion will be weighted (x 2). Projects will receive points based on how much work has been done. 10 points = Ready for construction 8 points = within 6 months of construction 6 points = PA&ED and PS&E complete, in r/w phase 4 points = PS&E complete 2 points = PA&ED complete Local Match — (1 to 5 points) Extra points will be given to projects that provide local match above and beyond the minimum required, which is 11.47 percent for CMAQ and STP funds. Local agencies will be required to provide a resolution or council action on the commitment of local match. 5 points = 55% or more 4 points = 45-54% 3 points — 35-44% 2 points — 25-34% 1 point — 15-24% Safety —1 to 5 points Local agencies will provide accident information and other documentation that justifies project safety benefits. A qualitative discussion will also be required to explain the proposed project's safety benefits. Air Quality —1 to 5 points (Consultant, Mr. Ray Gorski to conduct analyses) Local agencies will provide input data for the Commission's air quality consultant to perform an air quality assessment for each project. Results of the assessment will be provided at the Project Evaluations. Level of Service Improvement — 1 to 5 points Local agencies will provide traffic studies or alternative methodology justifying the proposed project's LOS improvement. Information provided can be qualitative, however, quantitative documentation from a traffic study could receive more points. Cost Benefit —1 to 5 points (Consultant, Mr. Ray Gorski to conduct analyses) Local agencies will provide input date for the Commission's air quality consultant to perform a cost benefit analysis for each project. Results of the analysis will be provided at the Project Evaluations. Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainability Communities Strategy (SCS) —1 to 5 points Local agencies will discuss how the project is identified or consistent with the 2012 SCAG RTP and/or SCS. Points will be assigned based on the project's relationship to the SCS. If a widening project also includes pedestrian and bicycle paths, it would receive higher points than a widening project that does not include pedestrian and bicycle paths.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At its March 2013 meeting, the Commission approved a Call for Rehabilitation Projects funded with federal STP funds in the amount of $13.8 million. The amount available is a set aside of 20% of Riverside County's federal fiscal year 2012/13 STP apportionment estimate provided by Caltrans. Criteria used for establishing allocation targets for each city and the County of Riverside were 2010 Census population and Federal Functional Classification System lane miles, which were weighted 50/50. STP funds are required to be matched at a minimum of 11.47%. Staff received 21 projects by the April 1, 2013 deadline, which will be brought forward for action at the May Commission meeting. Additional projects submitted after the deadline will be brought forward for action at the June Commission meeting. Staff reviewed the project submittals for completeness and recommends that the Commission approve the 21 projects totaling $12.142 million in STP funds with the local agencies committing a total of approximately $4.3 million in local funds. The county of Riverside's allocation target amount will be adjusted once information is received from Caltrans regarding Functional Classification System lane miles for the city of Eastvale that will separate the lane miles currently included in the unincorporated area. The projects and funding amounts are listed in Attachment A. The majority of the projects will be obligated in federal fiscal year 2013/14. Staff expects all of the projects to be delivered by the end of federal fiscal year 2014/15. Staff will report back to the Commission on the status of delayed projects, if any. I Upon approval, staff will program the projects in the Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP). Once the projects are in an approved FTIP, project sponsors will work with Caltrans District 8 Office of Local Assistance to complete the federal requirements for obligating the funds. Federal STP funds are administered through Caltrans; therefore there is no impact to the Commission's budget.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: As previously reported to the TAC, RCTC plans to conduct a Call for Projects for various transportation project categories such as capacity enhancements, transit capital, signal synchronization, arterial improvements, and bicycle and pedestrian improvements. Available funding includes federal Surface Transportation Program (STP), South Coast Air Basin (SCAB) Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ), and Transportation Activities Program (TAP). Additionally, Western Riverside County Measure A Regional Arterial funds will also be available for this Call. The estimated total amount of funds available for the Call is approximately $130 million. The 2014 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) Fund Estimate is scheduled for release in August 2013 and the availability of sufficient STIP funding may be added to this Call for Projects. The estimated timeframe for approval and release of this Multi-funding Call for Projects is scheduled for the Commission's June 2013 meeting. Assumptions - General assumptions for the Multi-funding Call for Projects are as follows: • Funding will be awarded to the most competitive regionally significant projects that support the evaluation criteria • Projects will support the goals of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) • Funding availability for each fund source are estimates and subject to change • Fund sources will be assigned and programmed by staff • Project sponsors should anticipate federal funds • Priority will be given to projects ready for construction (agency funded prior phases) • Projects will be ranked and evaluated by the TAC • Project categories will be ranked individually (e.g. transit projects will not compete with arterial improvements) • The Commission will propose Measure A projects • Geographic equity will be a consideration • A "Use it or Lose it" provision will be implemented • Funding limits will be considered (minimum and maximum funding request) • A minor set aside of the funding may be designated for early project development phases (PA&ED/PS&E) • CMAQ Salton Sea Air Basin funds will be allocated by CVAG and separate from this Call for Projects • Projects submitted for the SB 821 Call for Projects will also be considered for inclusion in this Multi-funding Call for Projects • A TAC subcommittee will be convened to further develop the criteria Criteria - As in past calls, there are always more projects than funding. It is planned to have criterion that will adequately identify project need and meet local and regional transportation planning and air quality goals. Criteria will include, but not be limited to: • Regional Significance • Local Match (minimum of 11.47%) • Air Quality • Cost Benefit • Safety • Level of Service Improvement • Project Readiness Evaluation criteria will be developed by a TAC subcommittee prior to the release of the Call for Projects. To address air quality, RCTC will have a consultant review and provide an air quality assessment/emission calculation for_ each project after the application due date. The TAC subcommittee will be asked to recommend quantitative methods for evaluating cost benefit and level of service. Schedule- The estimated release of the Multi-funding Call for projects is June 12, 2013. The applications will likely be due in eight weeks (or August). The timeframe needed will be discussed with the TAC to make sure there is ample time for project sponsors to prepare the applications. FTIP Programming - All federally funded projects must be included in the Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) and be consistent or included in the current Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). Upon Commission approval of funds, staff will program the projects in the FTIP. Upon the approval of the projects in the FTIP, agencies will begin the process of working with Caltrans Office of Local Assistance for the obligation of federal funds and approvals. For STIP funded projects, agencies will work with staff, Caltrans, and the California Transportation Commission for programming and allocation of STIP funds. Western Riverside County Measure A Regional Arterial funds will likely be programmed in the FTIP if other federal fund sources are approved for the project and/or if the project is regionally significant. Staff will program the projects in the FTIP according to the schedule provided in the project application and in accordance with availability of funding for each fiscal year.
