State Recreational Trails Program applications for existing trail bridges with historical and architectural significance

The Iowa DOT is now accepting applications for the remaining $500,000 funding available for existing trail bridges with historical and architectural significance. Applications for refurbishment of a historical and architecturally significant bridge will be required to include documentation that the bridge is either already listed on the National Register of Historic Places or that it is eligible to be listed.  A bridge that has been relocated from its original placement or is intended to be moved from its intended placement to a new location would be eligible for this funding if the relocation does not impact its listing on or eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places.  Applications for this dedicated funding are also required to include at least a dollar-for-dollar match (50%) of funds not awarded by the state. The SRT application form has been updated to include these program requirements. Application submittals must be postmarked by January 2, 2015 and must include an original and 6 hardcopies of the completed application and all attachments. Email submissions of the completed application by the stated deadline are allowed, but the original and 6 hardcopies of the completed application must follow by mail.
