Transportation Funding Information

Transportation funding in Washington state is complex. For every paving job, bicycle lane or bridge widening, the money probably comes from a different tax or fee.  Click the Transportation Resource Manual below for a complete explanation of how the public funds transportation in our state.

CDTC's primary role in transportation funding is to establish regional priorities.  Transportation 2040 the regional transportation plan for Chelan and Douglas counties, identifies our long-term funding priorities. Local cities and counties develop comprehensive plans and capital improvement programs that advance Transportation 2040 projects along with local priorities. 

The CDTC also selects transportation projects through a competitive grant process to receive federal gas tax dollars that are returned to our region. The Regional Transportation Improvement Program serves as a clearinghouse of approved transportation projects throughout the region.
