Transportation Department report gives the outlook for the next 30 years
from The Washington Post
Before diving into a thicket of transportation data and questions, a hefty new federal study makes a traffic projection that could get a chuckle, even from folks in Nebraska: Omaha, the new Los Angeles. That's by 2045, the study says, when traffic congestion in Omaha could be just as bad as it is in Los Angeles. With Capitol Hill still in a rugby scrum over how to find fresh cash to pay for transportation, Foxx and his staff have spent almost 18 months compiling a futuristic look at how the nation will fare if the ways in which people and goods get from place to place evolve just as they did in the 20th century.
