Public Lands Highways Discretionary (PLHD)

Forest Highway 171/Skyway Widening

The Public Lands Highways Discretionary (PLHD) Program was originally established in 1930 by the Amendment Relative to Construction of Roads through Public Lands and Federal Reservations. Funding was provided from the General Fund of the Treasury. The intent of the program is to improve access to and within the federal lands of the nation. PLHD funds are available for transportation planning, research, engineering, and construction of the highways, roads, and parkways, and of transit facilities within the Federal public lands. PLHD funds are also available for operation and maintenance of transit facilities located on Federal public lands. The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1970 changed the funding source for the program from the General Fund to the Highway Trust Fund, effective in fiscal year (FY) 1972. The program has been continued with each highway or transportation act since then.
