With over 4 million miles of public roads, including more than 163,000 miles of the National Highway System roadways, our nation is connected coasts to coasts and communities to communities. The 2010 edition of Our Nation's Highways includes updates on this complex roadway system and the latest changes due to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Office of Highway Policy Information establishes various travel monitoring policies and guidelines, collect and analyze a wide range of data including revenue, finance, vehicle registration, licensed drivers, highway fuel consumption, travel trend, travel behavior, and travel conditions in order to keep you updated on the state of our nation's treasured highway system. We hope that this edition will continue to serve you as a valuable resource.
