Highway Infrastructure: Federal-State Partnership Produces Benefits and Poses Oversight Risks
Phillip R. Herr (au)
The Dept. of Transportation (DOT) provides about $40 billion to the states annually to build and maintain highways and bridges through the federal-aid highway program. While this program has grown and changed over time, the federal-state relationship has been consistently one of ńˇýpartnershipńˇŁ since 1916. DOTńˇ╗s Fed. Highway Admin. (FHWA) has offices in all 50 states that have developed close working relationships with states. Legislation approved by the Senate in March 2012 would establish a more performance-based highway program, introducing performance measures for highways and bridges and requiring FHWA to monitor statesńˇ╗ progress in meeting those measures. This report examined (1) how the federal-aid highway program and FHWAńˇ╗s oversight have changed over time; (2) the extent to which FHWAńˇ╗s partnership approach produces benefits; (3) the extent to which FHWAńˇ╗s partnership approach poses risks; and (4) how FHWAńˇ╗s partnership with state DOTs could affect a transition toward a performance-based highway program. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
