Guide to Abbreviations:

TE: Transportation Enhancement. This is grant money from the federal government that state governments get to do paths, sidewalks, bike lanes, ped. bridges, etc. Counties, cities and groups (like Granger Paths) apply for these funds as they are made available. Indiana has a 80/20 match (some states have a 90/10 match) which means that the city, county, or group has to come up with the 20%.

PE: Preliminary Engineering
RW: Right of Way
CN: Construction
