environment photo

The Federal Lands Access Program (Access Program) was created under Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) to provide funds for work on public highways, roads, bridges, trails, and transit systems that are located on, are adjacent to, or provide access to Federal Lands. These facilities must be owned or maintained by a state, county, town, township, tribe, municipal, or local government. This program places emphasis on projects that provide access to high-use recreation sites or Federal economic generators. Funding is made available for planning, research, engineering, rehabilitation, restoration, construction, and reconstruction of Federal lands access transportation facilities.

The following activities are eligible for consideration on Federal Lands Access Transportation Facilities:

  • Rehabilitation, restoration, construction, and reconstruction
  • Adjacent vehicular parking areas
  • Acquisition of necessary scenic easements and scenic or historic sites
  • Provisions for pedestrian and bicycles
  • Environmental mitigation in or adjacent to Federal land to improve public safety and reduce vehicle-wildlife mortality while maintaining habitat connectivity
  • Construction and reconstruction of roadside rest areas, including sanitary and water facilities.
  • Operation of transit facilities
