THE ISTEA AND THE NHS: ONE STEP FORWARD, TWO STEPS BACK?
The purpose of the Surface Transportation Policy Project (STPP) is to ensure that transportation policy and investments help conserve energy, protect environmental and aesthetic quality, strengthen the economy, promote social equity, and make communities more livable. This paper discusses policy issues associated with the National Highway System (NHS) established by Paragraph 1006 of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). This discussion emphasizes the needs of people, rather than vehicles, in assuring access to jobs, services and recreational opportunities. The work of the STTP has been supported by grants from the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Energy Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the James C. Penney Foundation, and the Surdana Foundation, Inc. development, environmental protection, social equity, and community cohesion should all be important to determining policy choices.
