1995 STATUS OF THE NATION'S SURFACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM: CONDITION AND PERFORMANCE. REPORT TO CONGRESS. A SUMMARY

This publication provides a summary of the "1995 Status of the Nation's Surface Transportation System: Condition and Performance Report to Congress". It is presented in two parts. The first contains material on highway and transit facilities, while the second covers the maritime industry. Part I begins with a discussion of highway and transit system and user characteristics. The second chapter provides information on highway and transit finance. The third chapter provides an indication of how well the highway and transit systems are working. The next chapter provides estimates of the investment required, by all units of government, to either maintain or improve the condition and performance of the highway and transit systems over the next 20 years. These estimates are expressed as average annual requirements, that is the 20-year investment total divided by 20 years. The final chapter in Part I provides a linkage between the 20-year investment estimates and actual recent capital outlays by all units of government for highway, bridge, and transit capital improvements. Part II summarizes information describing the maritime system. Material is also provided on system condition and performance. This section does not provide estimates of future investment requirements. This summary report contains a number of boxes labeled "Drawing Conclusions" that provide background information that may be useful in interpreting the report's statistical information.
