FINANCING HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENTS IN THE EIGHTIES. SESSION 12

The tight supply of funds for new highway construction or rehabilitation of existing roads has forced states, counties and local area governmental entities to search for new financing methods. New special taxes, tolls on existing tax-supported roads, and general obligation bond packages are just some of the possibilities being considered. The use of tolls to finance new roadway construction and rehabilitation is being considered by many states which heretofore did not embrace this concept, including Arizona, Oregon and Iowa. An expansion of the toll concept could significantly contribute to improving our transportation infrastructure. (Author)
