Transportation Benefit District

The Battle Ground Transportation Benefit District (TBD) was established in 2014 as a means to provide adequate levels of funding for the purpose of ongoing transportation improvements that preserve, maintain, and as appropriate, construct or reconstruct the transportation infrastructure of the City.  The district area includes the entire corporate limits of the City of Battle Ground as its boundary.


Effective July 1, 2015, residents who live within Battle Ground city limits will be assessed a $20 TBD (Transportation Benefit District) fee when renewing or purchasing vehicle tabs. The revenue created will be used for the sole purpose of transportation improvements such as the maintenance, preservation and construction/reconstruction of roadways within the Battle Ground city limits.  
View the Washington State Department of Licensing Transportation Benefit District  page for additional information on TBDs including a list of vehicles subject to the fee and a list of exempt vehicles.


Projects funded by the TBD are within the City's corporate limits and are identified as preservation and maintenance, in the City's Comprehensive Transportation Plan, or in the 6-Year Transportation Improvement Program.

Street Maintenance & Preservation Methods

Learn about the various maintenance and preservation methods you may see utilized in the City of Battle Ground.

2018 TBD Funded Projects

Projects funded in 2018 include long striping (the repainting of roadway centerlines and fog lines) throughout the city; repainted street markings, such as crosswalks and turn arrows throughout the city; and crack and slurry sealing of roadways in all four quadrants of the city:

  • NW Quadrant: Parkview Trails neighborhood
  • SW Quadrant:  Horsethief Canyon neighborhood
  • SE Quadrant:  Woodin Run, Brookhaven Melanie’s Meadow, and Lindberg neighborhoods
  • NE Quadrant:  Falcon One, Fawn Meadows, Noble View, and Tukes Mt Meadows neighborhoods

The 2018 Crack/Slurry Seal Maps indicate the specific streets where crack and slurry sealing will or has occurred. 

The crack and slurry sealing process protects streets from damaging water intrusion that would otherwise lead to potholes and eventual failure of the roadway.  Crack sealing – application of asphalt rubber sealant to cracks in the streets occurs prior to the slurry seal.   Slurry sealing is the application of an asphalt emulsion and aggregate (very small crushed rock) mixture from curb to curb on the entire street.  This mixture seals the pavement and prevents damaging water intrusion.
