The Community Bridge Investment Program (CBIP) is a surface transportation program administered by the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF). The CBIP is a competitive program that solicits community input and project sponsorship. Development of CBIP projects includes identifying needs through public outreach and involvement, evaluating and scoring eligible projects, and prioritizing and selecting projects for funding. Once projects are awarded, the next steps are planning and programming, environmental analysis, design, Right of Way (ROW), appraisal and acquisition, funding, construction, and financial close out. DOT&PF planning staff will assist communities interested in this program to prepare capital projects for submission and through the life of selected projects.
The CBIP program objective is to provide funding for bridge projects that improve bridge conditions on those bridges most in need of repair, enhance safety and the reliability of the movement of people and freight over bridges; and do so in a way that maximizes benefits to costs. DOT&PF is currently developing project selection criteria which will be made available to applicants for consideration prior to project submission.
Scoring criteria is being developed and will be available to communities prior to the application due date. It is expected that the following criteria will be assessed:
The federal program used to fund the CBIP is the Bridge Formula Program. Eligible projects in the CBIP are surface transportation projects that replace, rehabilitate, preserve, or protect a bridge on the National Bridge Inventory (NBI), or a project to replace or rehabilitate culverts on the NBI for the purpose of improving flood control and improved habitat connectivity for aquatic species. Projects in the CBIP include, but are not limited to:
Projects not eligible under the Surface Transportation CBIP include, but are not limited to:
Alaska DOT&PF will announce the upcoming CBIP in spring of 2023, and will release an initial schedule of milestones, draft criteria, and examples of projects. Plenty of time will be allowed for communities to prepare and coordinate with Alaska DOT&PF Regional Planners before the Call for Projects.
