The provisions for road development are highlighted, and comments are made on the interstate highway system. Construction of intercity projects, rehabilitation of interstate routes, the apportioning of Interstate System funds to the states, withdrawals and substitutions, and an Interstate funding study are discussed. The Act is discussed in relation to primary, secondary and urban systems, and major new provisions are covered. Authorizations related to the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1976 and the Highway Safety Act of 1976 are reviewed. These cover such aspects as demonstration projects, highway studies, state and community grants, and safety research and development.
