For further information regarding these project types and specific projects, please refer to the Regional Transportation Plan.
The DNLTC prepares an annual Overall Work Program and a Regional Transportation Plan every four years, as well as programs projects into the transportation improvement programs every two years. The DNLTC is also responsible for Transportation Development Act (TDA) funds. TDA funds involve two major funding sources; Local Transportation Funds (LTF) and State Transit Assistance Funds (STA). TDA funds are used by the City of Crescent City and Del Norte County for transportation planning, expenses related to administering the TDA, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, the transit system, and for street and road projects. STA is allocated to the transit operator for transportation planning and other transit related projects.
