Exhibit 25-8:

Cost of Program to Eliminate Linear Deficiency Backlog

Exhibit 25-8

Exhibit 25-8 is a bar graph that shows the cost of programs to eliminate the linear deficiency backlog. The vertical axis measures millions of dollars from 0 to 3,500 in increments of 500 million. The horizontal axis has three bars with three parts, one for each population group and program. The first bar, for rural populations, or 182 of 243 miles, had about $100 million for "capacity added" with marginal amounts for "travel width added" and "pavement repaired." The second bar, for small urban populations, or 248 of 289 miles, had $550 million for "capacity added," less than $100 million for "travel width added," and a marginal amount for "pavement repaired." And the third bar, for urbanized populations, or 550 of 690 miles, had $1,400 million for "capacity added," more than $100 million for "travel width added," and less than $100 million for "pavement repaired."
