Projects of National and Regional Significance

Projects of National and Regional Significance (PNRS) improve the safe, secure, and efficient movement of people and goods through the U.S. to improve the national economy. Twenty-five projects were designated in SAFETEA-LU. Evaluation and rating guidelines have been established to determine future project funding. Under the provisions of MAP-21, $500,000,000 was authorized to be appropriated to carry out PNRS in fiscal year 2013. While no funds were appropriated in FY13, Section 1120 of MAP-21 requires the USDOT to develop a report to Congress that contains a comprehensive list of each project of national and regional significance that has been compiled through a survey of State departments of transportation; transit agencies, tribal governments, and multi-state or multi-jurisdictional groups. The comprehensive list will enable the Secretary to classify projects of regional or national significance and to develop recommendations on financing for eligible project costs.
