Notes: Federal expenditure includes direct federal spending, excluding grants to state and local governments. State and local expenditure includes outlays from all sources of funds including funds from federal grants, except railroad and pipeline modes. State and local expenditure for rail and pipeline modes include outlays that are funded by federal grants only. The part of expenditure that may be funded by other funding sources of state and local governments are not covered due to lack of data.
Water mode does not include outlays for civilian transportation-related activities of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for construction, operation, and maintenance of channels, harbors, locks, and dams, and protection of navigation. Local government outlays for highway are not included in 2006.
Federal highway expenditure has been revised for 2000. In addition, railroad and general support expenditure have been revised for 1995 and 2000.
