Projects selected by the ICTC Evaluation Committee are based upon locally adopted criteria. The criteria are: project resulting in community benefit, increase in safety, employment, air quality, aesthetics, and connectivity between communities. The projects need to show a clear schedule of events provided from design to construction and must demonstrate that the project is a part of a greater transportation plan.
