Call for Projects (2022-2023)

The Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System (PACTS) issued a call for projects in November 2022, seeking applications for federal funding for “complex” roadway/multimodal projects and transit “system enhancement” projects. Approximately $4.1M is expected to be available in Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds for “complex” roadway/multimodal projects and $1.7-$2.8M in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 funds for transit “system enhancement” projects.



Applications were due January 31, 2023; PACTS received nine applications:


Roadway/Multimodal Projects


Transit Projects

Scoring Committee

We sought volunteers to score the applications. Each volunteer was asked to affirm there will be no conflict of interest in their scoring of projects. We assembled a five-member scoring committee.


Each applicant gave a brief presentation to the scoring committee. Video recordings and slide decks from those presentations are available in the Agenda Center.

Scoring Results

The scoring committee scored the projects using the rubric in the PACTS Transportation Funding Framework. Committee members’ scores were averaged to arrive at a single number. Detailed scoring information is shown in the table below. You can also see the scores in chart format for both complex roadway/multimodal projects and transit system enhancement projects
