This article discusses the highway act which calls for states to implement six management systems and a traffic monitoring system by September 1995. The management systems governing highway pavements, highway bridges, public transit, and intermodal transportation must be implemented by all 50 states by fiscal year 1996 or face possible loss of federal funds (Section 1034 of the Intermodal Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991). The requirements of the act are listed and discussed. Metropolitan areas must develop these systems in cooperation with metropolitan planning organizations (MPO). In Transportation Management Areas (TMA), traffic congestion management systems must be developed through a transportation planning process. The objectives of the management systems are noted and include the following: ensure proper use of federal funds; lessen traffic congestion; and mitigate air pollution.
