    $163 billion needed annually to fix aging surface transportation system
    BRIAN ETHRIDGE | DECEMBER 9, 2014

    It’s being estimated that an investment of $163 billion per year is needed in order to fix the nation’s deteriorating surface transportation system, according to the “2015 Bottom Line Report” on transportation investment needs, released by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and the American Public Transportation Association.

    Currently only $83 billion is invested in roads and bridges, while just $17.1 billion is invested in public transit.
