The District Department of Transportation is accepting applications for a federal program supporting alternatives to highway construction.

DDOT said there is $1.2 million available under the Transportation Alternatives Program, and the agency will accept applications through August 15. There will be a competitive process that favors projects geared toward bicycle and pedestrian access, as well as general community improvement.

DDOT said it expects applications from local governments, regional transportation authorities, transit agencies, school districts or natural resource or public land agencies. Certain non-profit entities can also apply if they are partnering with another entity on a TAP project.
