Refuge Roads (RR)

The Refuge Roads Program (RRP) provided funding for the design, construction, reconstruction, maintenance, or improvement of refuge roads and bridges that provide access to or are within a unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Funding cannot be used to design or construct new roads. This is the only Federal Lands Highway (FLH) Program that allowed funding for maintenance. RRP funds could be 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 Federal Highway Administration's Federal Lands Highway Office administered the program.

RR Program was eliminated under MAP-21. All projects previously authorized under the RR Program will still be administered under previous rules and regulations of the RR Program.
