TAKE ACTION: Help Your State DOT get Funding to Let Projects as Planned
AGC is asking members to call on the Trump Administration and Congress to include immediate funding for state departments of transportation (DOTs) in future COVID-19 relief legislation. Due to the unprecedented impact of the pandemic, state DOTs are beginning to delay projects until the next fiscal year and consider cancelling others, as transportation revenue projections show significant declines nationwide. Without immediate federal funding to state DOTs to help ensure these projects can move forward, the threat of significant layoffs grows exponentially. Currently, projections show a 50 percent vehicle traffic decline and, in certain states, toll road traffic down 67 percent. Specific impacts of these declines include individual state transportation revenue losses as high as 45 percent in the next 18 months.
