STATE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING TO ACHIEVE MULTIMODAL MULTIJURISDICTIONAL, AND MULTIFACETED TRANSPORTATION OBJECTIVES

There are two widely separated institutional views of state transportation planning. One maintains that federal agencies are imposing increasing and burdensome personnel costs on state DOTs (adding annually some 8 to 10 percent in personnel requirements through the addition of regulations, guidelines, and documentation and through courtroom appearances and resulting court interpretations). Another is based on the feeling of federal officials that the states are unwilling or unable to accept the enlarged concepts and objectives that are critical to current and future transportation planning; that they are, in effect, still building the Interstate highway system in the post-Interstate era. /Author/
