Issues & Modes / Highways and Streets

There are over 4 million miles of roads in the United States moving cars, trucks, transit, and non-motorized vehicles across a seamless, integrated network. About three-quarters of the roads are owned by localities but the vast majority of travel occurs on major state roads and the federally-designated Interstate System. Today, this complex system is under strain as demands for upgrades and repair, safety improvements, and modernization mount.
