Some smaller items, like signage and markings, are considered eligible capital purchases and can be purchased with federal highway obligation authority funds. These sorts of purchases do not require the same level of design review, but installation costs must be furnished by the local government—in this case, the Town of Nantucket. Small intersection improvements require design and engineering services. As such, these kinds of projects tend to be better suited to local implementation due to the design and reporting requirements required for state and federal aid projects. The Transportation Program Manager does maintain a list of intersection improvement requests for inclusion in the Long Range Transportation Plan in the event there are opportunities to “bundle” projects together for state and/or federal funding support. The viability of this approach, however, is not guaranteed.
