This article underscores the point that increased and continued funding is necessary to maintain and build highways as the number of vehicles on roads in the U.S. continues to climb. Most of the nation's spending for transportation infrastructure is financed by federal, state, and local governments as the provision and maintenance of transportation infrastructure in the U.S. is largely a government responsibility. This includes building and maintaining interstate and local highways and bridges, international and municipal airports, subways and mass transit systems, harbors and ports, parking facilities, and passenger rail. Federal funding allocation through 2003 under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century is also discussed in some detail.
