Tribal Transportation Program (25 CFR 170) (formerly Indian Reservation Roads)

Proposed Rule and Explanatory Information

In 2012, Congress passed the Moving Ahead for Programs in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21 Law), which replaced the existing Indian Reservation Roads (IRR) program with the Tribal Transportation Program (TTP). Indian Affairs has been working with the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration on updating regulations to comply with these changes. Last year, draft revisions to 25 CFR 170 were distributed and consultation sessions held on the draft. Tribal and other feedback was incorporated into the draft and now Indian Affairs has published the proposed rule.

The Proposed Rule is available here: 25 CFR 170 Proposed Rule
