Transportation Reauthorization BillMAP-21: Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century
On July 6, 2012, President Obama signed into law, P.L. 112-141, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). This law authorizes and funds the federal surface transportation policy and programs for two years. MAP-21 expedites project delivery, establishes policies to improve freight movement, and consolidates a number of highway programs across federal highway, transit, and safety programs. MAP-21 takes effect on October 1, 2012 (with a three-month extension of the current law) and expires on September 30, 2014. SEMCOG’s role continues to be performing the necessary transportation planning and directing the use of those funds in Southeast Michigan. Click on the links below for more information about MAP-21.
