Description & Coverage
Description:

Long-term economic growth and increasing vehicle congestion is creating a greater demand for efficient and safe transportation.

The book covers the topics of sustainability and climate change, public management and planning, financing of transportation infrastructure, and revenue and spending issues facing modern transportation infrastructure.
