Description

TRB has released the final print version of TRB Special Report 312: Transportation Investments in Response to Economic Downturns that provides guidance for federal and state officials on the best ways to use stimulus funds for transportation in the future and methods for evaluating such investments. The report examines lessons learned and impacts from the states' management of the transportation component of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which provided $48.1 billion for U.S. Department of Transportation programs.

Appendix A of TRB Special Report 312 highlights two papers that were used to help inform the committee during its development of the report. The papers are not available in the print version of the report but are available for download in PDF format from the following links:

Should Transportation Spending Be Included in a Stimulus Program? A Review of the Literature; and

Impact of Program Implementation on the Effectiveness of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act: The Case of Transportation.

A press release for TRB Special Report 312 is also available.
