Connecting America: 1999 Report to the Nation
U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, 2000 - Express highways - 37 pages
This is the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) annual report. It explains what FHWA does and how it works to create and maintain the best transportation system in the world. For more than 100 years, the FHWA has concentrated on building and repairing the highway infrastructure. In the last decade of the 20th century, FHWA's role expanded dramatically and is now reflected in five strategic goals: Safety, Mobility, Productivity, Human and Natural Environment, and National Security. The report begins with opening words by Kenneth R. Wykle, Federal Highway Administrator, continues with a brief historical perspective and comments on the status of FHWA at the beginning of the 21st century. The five goals are then examined individually and their accomplishments enumerated. Concluding sections provide information on FHWA's reorganization in 1999, FHWA's financial statement, and a directory of FHWA Headquarters, Resource Centers, Division Offices, and Federal Lands Highway Division Offices.
