Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Expenditures/Revenues
The estimated long range financial need for FHWA and FTA TMA expenditures was calculated using the following steps:
To account for projected revenues needed over the life of this plan, it was assumed that FHWA and FTA transportation expenditures must at a minimum be the amount of revenue needed to be fiscally constrained (i.e. expenditures should equal revenues). The calculated 5-year average of expenditures was used to estimate expenses for the life of the plan. An inflation factor of 1.0 percent (provided by WisDOT) was applied to the 2010-2014 annual average expenses and compounded for each year out to 2050. This data was then grouped by 5 year increments as shown in Table 1-2.
