EFFECTS OF FEDERAL TRANSPORTATION FUNDING POLICIES AND STRUCTURES. APPENDIX D. THE APPALACHIAN DEVELOPMENT HIGHWAY SYSTEM

The study concerns the effects of Federal transportation funding policies, as reflected in the Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS). The ADHS, as the major component of the thirteen-state Appalachian Regional Commission's transportation program, is particularly significant in several regards. It is a large venture--$3 billion in Federal and State funds have already been obligated. And, considerable work remains to be done, as only some 1300 of the authorized 2900 miles requiring construction are improved to standards and open to traffic. This work is part of a broader study that addresses the effects of funding structures across highway, airport and transit homes.
