The 1973 Federal Aid Highway Act is reviewed, and its more important provisions are set forth. A discussion of highway programs covers such aspects as the Interstate Highway System, the apportionment of Interstate System Funds, completion schedules and mileage substitutions, and urban interstate and transit substitution. Authorizations, apportionments, the urban system, transfers and public transportation in the primary, secondary and urban highway systems are discussed, as well as such aspects as bicycle and pedestrian facilities, certification acceptance and realignment. New or expanded programs are reviewed, and authorizations for certain specialized highway programs included in the 1973 act are examined. Toll facility provisions, highway safety programs, and the provision of capital grant assistance for mass transportation are also considered.
