Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Evaluation of State-of-the-Art Transportation Funding and Finance Methods

The objective of this project is to support American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials AASHTO) efforts to analyze funding from the federal Highway Trust Fund (HTF) and other sources to better estimate the potential levels of federal highway and transit resources in the future, with particular attention to estimating the implications of instability in the federal surface transportation program. The research will update AASHTO's Highway Trust Fund (HTF) Model to more accurately and efficiently estimate the levels and potential impacts of the federal highway and transit resources in the future. The research team will provide expert support for selected AASHTO meetings related to development of the organization's policy positions on funding and finance and prepare selected briefing papers or summary analyses on specific funding and finance issues.
