All SRTS infrastructure projects and non- infrastructure activities need to comply with applicable provisions in Title 23, such as project agreements, authorization to proceed prior to incurring costs, etc. In addition, infrastructure projects under the SRTS program must comply with Davis Bacon prevailing wage rates, competitive bidding, and other contracting requirements, even for projects not located within the right-of-way of a federal-aid highway.
As part of the Title 23 requirements, all projects funded by SRTS funds must also comply with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations. Most SRTS infrastructure projects will likely fall under the categorical exclusions provisions of Title 23 Code of Federal Regulations Section 771.117 that recognize construction of bicycle and pedestrian lanes, paths, and facilities as not involving significant environmental impacts.
