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

Illustration of Transportation-related topics

“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.”

- Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood


On July 6, 2012, President Obama signed into law P.L. 112-141, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). MAP-21 provides needed funds and represents a milestone for the U.S. economy:

  • The first multi-year transportation authorization enacted since 2005
  • Funds surface transportation programs at over $105 billion for fiscal years (FY) 2013 and 2014
  • Transforms the framework for investments to guide the growth and development of the country’s vital transportation infrastructure.

This website contains information on implementation of MAP-21 at the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Department has focused on making progress on transportation options for the past three years. We will continue to work closely with stakeholders to ensure that local communities are able to build multimodal, sustainable projects ranging from passenger rail and transit to bicycle and pedestrian paths.
