Public Lands Highways Discretionary (PLHD)

The Public Lands Highways Discretionary (PLHD) Program was eliminated under MAP-21. All projects previously authorized under the PLHD Program will still be administered under previous rules and regulations of the PLHD Program. The PLHD Program provided funding for transportation planning, research, and engineering and construction of, highways, roads, parkways, and transit facilities that were within, adjacent to, or provide access to Indian reservations and Federal public lands, including national parks, refuges, forests, recreation areas, and grasslands. PLH funds were used for any type of Title 23 transportation project providing access to or within Federal or Indian lands and may be used for the State/local matching share for apportioned Federal-aid Highway Funds, as described in 23 USC 120(l). The program was administered by the Office of Federal Lands Highway.
