From the press release:
Congestion, growth, and improved safety are three reasons state departments of transportation say they need to increase highway and bridge capacity in their communities. Transportation Reboot: Unlocking Gridlock offers a state-by-state rundown of the most urgent transportation projects needed in urban areas to meet these challenges as well as to address projected increases in population and freight.
Unlocking Gridlock is the first in a series of reports issued by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), offering new research and data on why states need the ability to increase capacity in their transportation system. Some advocacy groups in Washington are hoping to persuade Congress to adopt a “fix-it first” approach that would steer transportation funds into system preservation alone.
