Our Nation's Highways: 2011


With over 4 million miles of public roads, including more than 164,000 miles of National Highway System roadways, our nation is connected coast-to-coast and community-to-community. The 2011 edition of Our Nation's Highways includes updates on our complex roadway infrastructure, revenue and finance, travel trends, and travel behavior. It also provides the latest updates on projects and programs associated with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Office of Highway Policy Information (OHPI) establishes various travel monitoring policies and guidelines; collects and analyzes a wide range of data including revenue, finance, vehicle registration, licensed drivers, highway fuel consumption, travel trends, travel behavior, and travel conditions to keep you updated on the state of our nation's highway system, and provides technical assistance during legislative processes. We hope that this edition will continue to serve as a valuable resource.
