Abstract

Funding for transportation projects has historically come from governments, including federal, state, and local levels. This remains the current approach as well. More than $200 billion per year is invested in transportation projects [3] across the U.S. The largest source of revenue is the tax on gasoline, both at the federal and state levels.
