The current funding authorization for the federal highway and transit program expires on May 31. The continued precarious financial situation with the Highway Trust is also creating uncertainty. More can kicking isn’t an option. It’s time for Congress to take action. You can use our tools to tell them why:
- Over the past 10 years, on average, the federal highway program has provided 52 cents of every $1 dollar invested by state DOTs in highway and bridge capital improvements.
- As a result, the trust fund has suffered five revenue shortfalls between 2008 and 2014.
- The next Highway Trust Fund cash crisis is expected to occur in summer 2015.
- The lack of clarity about federal surface transportation funding hinders the ability of the states to plan and the private sector to deliver needed infrastructure improvements.
