    • Abstract:
      Pursuant to Section 1006(a) of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) proposes a National Highway System (NHS) of nearly 159.000 miles (about 256,000 kilometres). Specific legislative language to enact the NHS and continue the intermodal of the NHS is included in this report. This NHS is the first major component of a larger, fully coordinated, and integrated National Transportation System (NTS) that will meet the evolving transportation needs of the Nation as we enter the 21st century. The NTS will have as its goal the creation of a unified, interconnected system of modal facilities and services that accommodates national and regional transportation demands, both freight and passenger. The NTS will embrace the principles of ISTEA which encourage those investments that innovatively address transportation needs, support commerce crucial to our national economic growth and our competitive posture in a global economy. The NTS will be developed by the DOT beginning early next year through an extensive outreach process that will involve collaboration with the Congress and with the States, local governments, and other public and private organizations. As a first step, the process will focus on innovative solutions to existing and emerging infrastructure issues.
