Abstract:

To help meet increasing transportation demands, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) created three programs to invest federal funds in national and regional transportation infrastructure. As requested, this report provides (1) an overview of the goals, funding status, and types of projects and activities funded by the three programs; (2) advantages and challenges identified by program stakeholders; and (3) potential program enhancements. GAO reviewed pertinent federal laws and rules; examined plans for selected projects; conducted site visits; and interviewed officials, stakeholders, and experts. GAO is not recommending executive action. However, to enhance these programs, Congress should consider the following matters: (1) defining the federal role in accordance with national and regional program priorities, (2) implementing a criteria-based, competitive project selection process, and (3) working with the Secretary of Transportation to develop any specific program enhancements that could help these programs meet priorities and achieve the highest possible return on federal investments.
