New Congressionally Mandated Committee Studies Ways to Keep U.S. Interstates Safe and Reliable

​Americans take 300 million trips on the U.S. Interstate System every day. Getting where we want to go requires a network of reliable roads and bridges and that takes money.  How much money is America spending to maintain and operate the US Interstate System safely? Are we investing enough to keep up with America’s growing population? Those are just two of the critical questions Congress wants a new committee to answer.  AASHTO Executive Director, Bud Wright and FHWA Administrator Greg Nadeau testified before that committee this month.  In this Transportation TV News Update you’ll meet the Committee’s chairman to learn more about the information they plan to gather and why this work is important to every American no matter where they live or how they travel.
