Transportation Enhancements (TE) is a federal transportation program that funds community-based projects that expand travel choices and enhance the transportation experience by improving the cultural, historic, aesthetic, and environmental aspects of our transportation infrastructure. Projects can include creation of bicycle and pedestrian facilities, streetscape improvements, refurbishment of historic transportation facilities, and other investments that enhance communities, access, and the environment
MassDOT manages the TE program in Massachusetts through a partnership between the Office of Transportation Planning (OTP) and the Highway Division.
Detailed program information is available in the Guidelines document. For additional questions, contact:
The Federal Highway Administration oversees each state TE program's compliance with federal regulations.
The National Transportation Enhancements Clearinghouse (NTEC) is an information service sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration and Rails-to-Trails Conservancy that provides professionals, policy makers, and citizens with timely and accurate information necessary to make well-informed TE decisions. NTEC provides documents and technical assistance regarding TE to the public free of charge; maintains databases of TE project information, project examples, and program contacts; tracks federal funding of TE projects; publishes a quarterly newsletter on TE; and facilitates communication between TE professionals.
