The article focuses on transportation infrastructure and planning in the U.S. The state highway construction was initiated by President Dwight D. Eisenhower with federal government providing aid to states for highway implementations. The economic recession in 2009 reduced the federal aid. However, a certain amount as directed by the U.S. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is sent across for highway funding. Fuel taxes have been initiated by some states for highway infrastructure.
