DEVELOPMENT OF STATE DEPARTMENTS OF TRANSPORTATION: A RECENT ORGANIZATIONAL PHENOMENON

TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE REASONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF STATE DEPARTMENTS OF TRANSPORTATION, EARLY DEVELOPMENTS ON THE STATE LEVEL, AND ESTABLISHMENT OF THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. THE WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION IS PRESENTED AS TYPICAL, AND THE PROPOSED DEPARTMENT IN TENNESSEE IS DISCUSSED. THERE ARE APPROPRIATE REASONS FOR GOVERNMENT TO JOIN PRIVATE ENTERPRISE IN PLANNING, DIRECTION, AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE FIELD OF TRANSPORTATION THROUGH A DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION; THIS NEED HAS ALREADY BEEN RECOGNIZED AND ACTED UPON BY 15 STATES AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. /DOT/
