In-Kind Repairs: Overview

"In-Kind Repairs" are the restoration of areas to pre-disaster conditions.

In-Kind Repairs are:

  • The predominate type of ER repair.
  • Usually the fastest and most cost-effective way to restore access.
  • Usually meet the criteria for a Categorical Exclusion, if the repairs:
    • Occur within the existing Right-of-Way
    • Substantially conform to pre-existing design, function, and location
    • Commence within a two-year period (See 23 CFR 771.117 (9))
