    Transportation Funding At A Crossroads: What Will It Take To Deliver A 21st Century Transportation System?

    It’s no secret that transportation is facing a funding crisis. The Highway Trust Fund is nearing insolvency, California’s highway system faces a $59 billion backlog in deferred maintenance, and local roads are falling into disrepair requiring mounting costs to fix.

    Join this timely discussion on transportation funding challenges at the local, state, and federal level; short-term and long-term funding solutions currently being considered; and how various funding solutions compare in the context of broader environmental, societal, and economic goals.

    This forum is being organized by the National Center for Sustainable Transportation (NCST) in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Sacramento Area Council of Governments, and the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis.

    Free networking lunch to follow.
