This report is intended to serve as a "bottom line" assessment of investment needed to meet the competitive demands of the next century. It estimates investment needs for all modes of transport in the public sector and represents the best available federal, state, and local analyses. No estimates of private sector requirements are included. The central elements in public investment are the rights-of-way over which both private and public fleets operate. This includes highways of all kinds (excluding only private roadways), transit rights-of-way, waterway facilities and airways. Excluded are all rail rights-of-way of America's private railroads and the pipeline system and associated facilities of the private pipeline industry. This report relies on the data presented in the 1995 report to Congress by the U.S. Department of Transportation title "The Status of the Nation's Surface Transportation System: Condition and Performance".
