Transportation Infrastructure Funding Map

Transportation Funding

The Infrastructure Investment IAT is co-chaired by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). The interactive Transportation Infrastructure Funding Map highlights Federal infrastructure investment in the marine transportation system (and intermodal connectors) for the past five years. It shows both physical and informational infrastructure and incorporates investments in vessels, ports, equipment, vehicles, roads, rail, bridges, and intermodal connectors involved with the Marine Transportation System “to the last mile.” The map also showcases where the Federal Government previously invested in MTS-related infrastructure. It specifically emphasizes the importance of the inland waterway system as part of the Nation’s overall freight transportation system.

There are more than 15 data sets represented on the map, including Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER), Projects of National and Regional Significance (PNRS), Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA), Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing (RRIF), Small Shipyard Grants, American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) projects, and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Port Security Grants as well as USACE funding for construction, operation, and maintenance. The overall Federal Highway formula funding is represented by State totals. The various data sets and background layers can be toggled on or off, and each dot or line on the map can be clicked to obtain more detailed information about that specific location. For example, if you click “Houston,” a set of tables for the 14 separate Federal programs pops up. Each table can be viewed using the arrow in the upper-right corner. Additional data sets can be added as appropriate.

The CMTS hopes the Transportation Infrastructure Funding Map is a useful tool and visual aid for informing infrastructure investment decisions.

The CMTS is a Federal interagency coordinating committee directed by Congress and charter to improve the coordination of and make recommendations with regard to Federal policies that impact the MTS.
