How are street projects funded?
There are several ways that city motor construction projects are funded. Primarily, local road construction projects, are funded through Motor Fuel Tax (MFT) funds. The state collects gasoline taxes and distributes them yearly to cities proportionally to their population. Some projects also receive federal funds or grants. For example, Federal Aid Urban Funds (FAU) contributed to Wilson Street and Batavia Avenue repairs. Some repairs downtown are financed through local programs, such as Tax Increment Financing.
