Who is funding the proposed project?

Billings
County is funding the environmental process and preliminary engineering to meet
NEPA requirements. Possible funding sources for construction of the project may
come from the federal government and Billings County as follows:

  • Major
    County Routes:  Federal funding (up to a limited amount) of eligible costs
    with the remainder coming from County funds—typically 80 percent federal and 20
    percent County.
  • Forest
    Highway Routes: Federal funding (up to a limited amount) for eligible costs
    with the remainder coming from County funds.
  • Non-federal Aid Routes: No federal funding. All funds would come from the County.

These
funding sources reflect user taxes collected and dedicated to these types of
projects. No new taxes are proposed directly as a result of any proposed
alternatives.
