It then examines the transportation system on Federal lands, assessing its role, condition, funding sources, construction and maintenance expenditures. The conclusion includes an outlook on the future of the transportation system on Federal and tribal lands. The following acronyms are used in this appendix:

Q   Are the pavement conditions percentages presented in this appendix developed using the IRI and PSR standards discussed in Chapter 3?
A  No. The pavement condition ratings are based on separate analyses performed by each of the Federal Agencies. These may not be fully consistent with those reported by States in the Highway Performance Monitoring System.
Q   Are the figures cited for "backlog" in this appendix fully consistent with the investment backlog for all highways identified in Chapter 7?
A  No. The backlog figures are based on separate analyses performed by each of the Federal Agencies. The Highway Economic Requirements System (HERS) model was not used to develop the backlog estimates in this appendix.
