ROADS Fund, What's That?
The Rebuilding Oklahoma Access and Driver Safety (ROADS) Fund is a fund of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation that was created by the Legislature in 2005 to ensure dedicated revenue for the maintenance and repair of state highway and bridges. Money is apportioned directly to the ROADS Fund from personal income tax collections.
The ROADS Fund is guaranteed an annual apportionment equal to the amount apportioned for the previous year plus an additional $59.7 million until it reaches a cap of $575 million. In FY 2015 the Fund received $416.8 million.
