About URMD Safety Improvement Projects

The Urban Road Maintenance District (URMD) funds small-scale (less than $500,000) safety improvement projects, which include sidewalks, pathways, bike lanes and paved shoulders. Since 2011, more than 40 URMD Safety Improvement Projects totaling $14 million have been funded.

The public can submit safety improvement candidates.  Eligible candidates are added to the Small Road Improvements Candidate List. Currently, the list has more than 200 candidates, totaling far more than the available $2 million/year funding.  The Overveiw of URMD Safety Improvement Projects offers a brief explanation of selection process and the Summary Report: URMD Safety Improvement Program providers a deeper look at the program.

To be eligible, a proposed project must:

  • Improve a safety concern
  • Be located within the URMD
  • Not already be on the candidate list

PLEASE NOTE: Traffic signals, signs, crosswalks and other pavement markings are handled by the Department of Land Use & Transportation Traffic Engineering section and do not qualify for URMD funding.

The Urban Road Maintenance Advisory Committee (URMDAC) reviews the candidate list annually after July 15, to identify projects for funding. The public is asked to comment on the top candidates in fall, before URMDAC recommends projects  for inclusion in the next fiscal year Road Maintenance Program.

For more information, email Steve Franks, Urban Road Services Coordinator.
