Growing Movement Toward State And Local "Self Help"

This month's map shows the growing movement towards state and local “self help” in the funding of transportation infrastructure throughout the United States. According to the Eno Transportation Foundation, the largest measures on the November 2016 ballot raised more than $195 billion for public transit and other transportation projects nationwide – which is equivalent to about 65% of the total funding provided by the six-year FAST Act recently approved by Congress.
