Project Development
  • Highway projects can be generally characterized into two broad types of projects:
    • One of which is to provide access and mobility
    • The other is related towards preserving our current highway system
system preservation activities
System Preservation Activities
  • System Preservation – any activity to maintain our existing highway system
    • Examples from the PreCon database include:
      • Resurfacing and asphalt overlay
      • Bridge and pavement rehabilitation
      • Bridge replacement
      • Restoration
      • County Road Aid
      • Transportation Enhancement
access mobility activities
Access & Mobility Activities
  • Access & Mobility – any other activity to enhance and add capacity to the current highway system
    • Examples from the PreCon database include:
      • Major and minor widening
      • New route construction
      • Reconstruction
      • Relocation
      • Interchange reconstruction
historic fiscal issues
Historic Fiscal Issues
  • In 2000, the General Assembly mandated a spend-down of the $800m cash reserve and transition to Cash Flow Management system
  • The proposed gas tax increase was not passed by legislation, causing the Six-Year Plan to become unbalanced and grossly under-funded
creative financing solutions
Creative Financing Solutions

1) $440m in GARVEE bonds

    • $150m in FY05, $290m in FY06

3) Deferred construction payments

  • Increased cash on hand for future projects

4) Cash Flow Management process

  • Projects were let with cash on hand
  • Projected future revenues had to be higher than current expenditures to remain balanced
current financing issues
Current Financing Issues

1) Our credit card is maxed out

2) We have no new revenue source

3) Not as much construction for the same price

  • The Producers Price Index for highway construction shows:
    • Using 2000 as the base year, a 43% increase through 2007
    • Using 2007 as the base year, a 12% increase through April 2008
