Racine Journal Times Bulletin (Newspaper) - August 18, 1957, Racine, Wisconsin The journal limes vol 28, no. 17 Racine wis., sunday August 18, 1957 82 pages-6 sections-10 cents Mames pair As Road program trapped in bog of rising costs Washington i construction of a 41,000-mile network of superhighways crisscrossing the nation has been caught in the Pinch of rising costs and diminishing income. Results of the Pinch May not show up until fiscal 1960, which starts july 1, 1959. From then until possibly 1968, or later it s going to Hurt. The Highway act of 1956 contemplated completion of the interstate system in 13 to 15 years. Officials of the Bureau of Public roads Are now talking in terms of 16 years and possibly longer. Even to Complete it in 16 years will Call for a Mammoth burst of Road building activity in the last year or so of the program. Original estimates put the Cost of the vast Road building project at $271/2 billion. The Federal government picks up 90 per cent of the Tab and states pay the balance. Rising costs have knocked that estimate into a cocked hat. A new estimate now being completed is expected to add a minimum of $3 billion to the Bill and maybe More. Income behind schedule to make the Pinch More binding income from the special excise taxes on gasoline tires etc., is falling behind schedule. These Highway users taxes go into a special Highway Trust fund. Under the pay As you go legislation Federal allocations to the states for the interstate system cannot exceed the amount in the fund. In fiscal 1957, which ended last june 30, Trust fund income fell $60 million below the 11/2 billion which was forecast. Because work is just now getting under Way on the interstate network and the High spending has t really started there was still a surplus of 432 million to be carried Forward. Another surplus of 170 million has been forecast for this fiscal year although it probably won t be that High. In fiscal 1959 a deficit of 232 million will eat deeply into the surplus that has been carried Forward. And then starting in fiscal 1960, which begins july 1, 1959, that buildup surplus will probably disappear altogether and the program will Start to lag four possible choices because the authorizations May be carried Forward from year to j ear Road officials will just save them up until eventually they have the Money to fill them. But what Are they going to do about the expected jump in the Cost of the Highway system there appear to be four possible choices none of them attractive. The excise taxes May be increased the proposed mileage of the interstate system May be reduced the program May be lengthened by As Many years As needed to Complete it on smaller annual budgets or the Bureau May ask con press for appropriations to make up the difference. The trouble is tax increase is popular no congressman will want the mileage reduced in his own state and there is Little Chance Congress would Ever take the program off the strictly pay As you go basis by making any appropriations. That leaves Only a lengthening of the time needed to Complete the program and that is probably what s going to be done.
