Planning and Project Development

Replaces the 16 metropolitan and 23 statewide

planning factors with seven broad factors or

strategies which will:

  • support economic vitality;

  • increase safety;

  • increase accessibility and mobility;

  • protect and enhance the environment;


Planning and Project Development

  • enhance the connectivity and integration between modes;

  • promote efficient system management and operation; and

  • emphasize the preservation of the existing system.


Planning and Project Development

Metric Conversion

  • Removed a requirement that federal-aid highway projects use the metric system.


Research and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

  • $603 million for research, training and standards development.

  • $482 million for acceleration of integration and inter-operability, metro and rural.

  • $184 million for deployment of commercial vehicle ITS.


Highway Safety Programs

  • Two programs were established which impose sanctions on states to encourage states to enact state laws dealing with:

    • open alcohol containers in vehicles and

    • penalties for repeat OWI offenders.


Highway Safety Programs

  • Three incentive programs were established which provide additional funding for states to encourage:

    • increased seat belt usage in the state,

    • enactment of a law that provides for a .08 percent BAC drunk driving standard, and

    • improvement to highway safety data collection and accessibility.
