The Federal Highway Administration today announced that the agency has released the 1999 edition of Highway Statistics, an annual publication that contains a wide range of information on America’s roads and highway users.

"Highway Statistics is a comprehensive report that contains important data on every aspect of our nation’s highway system," FHWA Deputy Executive Director Vince Schimmoller said. "The report is widely used throughout the transportation sector, including other federal agencies, state and local governments and the private sector, all of whom share our commitment to building and maintaining the best transportation system in the world."

The 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 and local highway finance, highway mileage, federal-aid for highways, select tables and charts from the 1995 Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey, and international data. The data also are used as the principal data in calculating each state’s share of funds under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), the legislation that provides federal-aid funds to states.

The report is available on the agency’s website, http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim. The data tables can be viewed in PDF and downloaded as Excel spreadsheets. The report also is available by writing to the Office of Highway Policy Information, FHWA, Room 3306, 400 7th St. SW, Washington, DC 20590.

The FHWA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation, has 2,700 employees, a field office in every state and an annual budget of more than $30 billion. The FHWA works with the states and with communities across the country to build and maintain the nation’s highway system and its intermodal connectors. Through the Federal Lands Highway Program, the agency also works to provide access to national forests, national parks, Indian reservations and other public lands. In addition, the agency works with the U.S. Department of Defense to support the Strategic Highway Network and connectors that serve major military installations.
