The City of Oakridge, as a non-attainment area for air quality, receives an allocation of Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) federal funds to use for projects that result in emissions benefits. A project currently in the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) dedicates $330,000 toward a Diamond Express vehicle replacement. The project is funded with FTA-5309, FTA-5339, LTD, and City of Oakridge funds. It is proposed that $71,302 of Oakridge CMAQ funds be added to this project to replace an equal amount of local funds.
