FHWA 51-98

Federal Highway Administrator Kenneth R. Wykle today announced that the agency has released the 1997 edition of Highway Statistics, an annual publication that contains a wide range of information on America’s roads and infrastructure.

"Highway Statistics is a comprehensive report that contains, under one cover, important data on every aspect of our nation’s highway system," Wykle said. "The report is a powerful tool for our partners in government, industry and academia, as well as other stakeholders who share our commitment to fulfilling President Clinton’s pledge to promote transportation safety and rebuild America."

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and its forerunner, the Bureau of Public Roads, have published the report every year since 1945. It contains statistical data on motor fuel, motor vehicles, driver licensing, highway-user taxation, state highway finance, highway mileage, federal-aid for highways, highway finance data for municipalities and other units of local government, select tables and charts from the 1995 Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey, and international data.

The report is available by writing to the Office of Highway Information Management, FHWA, Room 3306, 400 7th St. S.W., Washington, D.C. 20590. The report also is available on the agency’s Web site. The address is: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim. The data tables can be viewed in PDF and downloaded as Lotus spreadsheets.

The FHWA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation, has 3,550 employees, a field office in every state and an annual budget of more than $25 billion. The FHWA works with the states and with communities across the nation to build and maintain America’s roads and bridges and ensure a strong intermodal transportation system. The agency also develops and helps regulate safety requirements for commercial vehicle operators and, through the Federal Lands Highway Program, works to provide access to national forests, national parks, Indian reservations and other public lands. In addition, the agency works with the Defense Department to support the Strategic Highway Network and connectors that serve major military installations.
