An attempt is made here to provide a vision for a national turnpike system funded by tolls, transportation benefit districts, private capital, and state and federal funding. The article also suggests policy, which if implemented, would make possible a larger number of miles of new expressway initiatives. The background for creation of a national turnpike financing policy, and the elements of a national turnpike system are described. Elements of the financing concept discussed include user financing package value-capture package; privatization initiatives; state legislation and financial assistance; and federal assistance package. The finanical policies outlined here were tested using computer models. Program policy issues, and capital improvement deferral strategies are also discussed.
