Moving Transportation Forward
MAP-21: the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act requires performance measures to increase the accountability and transparency of the federal-aid highway program and improve project decision making through performance-based planning and programming. MAP-21 makes significant changes to the federal transportation policy such as the greater dependence on state departments of transportation to manage affairs and attend to the needs of their constituents.
With MAP-21 the amount of funding programs will be consolidated by two-thirds. Federal law will not continue to set aside a minimum amount of funding for repairing roads and bridges, leaving it up to states to prioritize repairs and replacements. The law does reduce money dedicated to make our roads and neighborhoods safer but provides localities with more control.
The National Goals of the Program are:
- Infrastructure Condition
- System Reliability
- Freight Movement & Economic Vitality
- Environment Sustainability
- Reduced Project delays
