Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21)

MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (P.L. 112-141), was signed into law by President Obama on July 6, 2012. Funding surface transportation programs at over $105 billion for fiscal years (FY) 2013 and 2014, MAP-21 is the first long-term highway authorization enacted since 2005.

"This is a good, bipartisan bill that will create jobs, strengthen our transportation system and grow our economy. It builds on our aggressive safety efforts, including our fight against distracted driving and our push to improve transit and motor carrier safety. The bill also provides states and communities with two years of steady funding to build the roads, bridges and transit systems they need. We look forward to working with Congress, states and local communities to put this bill to work quickly and effectively." - Former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood

While MAP-21 is a milestone for the U.S. economy and the Nation's surface transportation program, it has made changes to many of the programs that we in the transportation industry have known for so long. MAP-21 consolidates the number of Federal programs by two-thirds, from about 90 programs down to less than 30, to focus resources on key national goals and reduce duplicative programs. Come learn more about MAP 21 including how some of the programs of old are being affected by the Act, and get some insights into the future of MAP 21.
