Background Discussion
  • On May 19, 2015, at the regular Board of County Commissioners (BCC) meeting, the Board adopted Resolution R-15-071 authorizing the staff to sign and submit a grant application for Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration authorized within the Technology and Innovation Deployment Program (TIDP) under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) to Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through Florida Department of  Transportation (FDOT).
  • In September 2015, FDOT and Manatee County were selected as recipients for the Grant for a total award of $1,000,000.
  • Public Works Department proposed to use the Grant funds to install Adaptive Signal Control Technology (ASCT)  at twenty (20) intersections along State Road (SR) 70 from Lakewood Ranch Boulevard to 5th Street West.
  • There is a twenty (20) percent fund match requirement from the applicant. FDOT had agreed to share the responsibility of the matching funds with the County for this project. As presented at the May 19, 2015, BCC meeting, the County's share of the matching funds will be in the form of in-house staff labor.
  • Based on the estimates, $790,000 of the $1,000,000 in the Grant funds are allocated for the ASCT equipment purchase. FDOT will purchase the equipment and transfer materials to Manatee County with funding provided under FM# 438870-1-53-01 with these funds.
  • For the remaining $210,000 of the $1,000,000, Manatee County will be reimbursed with grant funds for construction services under FM# 438870-1-58-01 up to a maximum of $210,000.
  • FDOT is installing equipment at ten (10) intersections with a currently programmed resurfacing project along SR 70.
  • The County will be responsible for installation of equipment at ten (10) intersections, which are part of this LAP agreement, and will be reimbursed for up to a maximum of $210,000. Public Works Department proposes to use in-house labor and equipment to complete the installation as the County's share of the required local match and to complement the material and construction services required.
  • The $210,000 for materials and construction services is programmed in the current fiscal year's budget. Upon invoicing, these funds will be reimbursed by FDOT.
