The nation's surface transportation system—roads, rails, ports, and public transit—is critical to the economy and affects the daily lives of most Americans.

However, the system is under growing strain, and costs to repair and upgrade it to meet current and future demands are estimated in the hundreds of billions of dollars—at a time when traditional funding sources are eroding.
