New Data Show U.S. Driving At Highest Level In Six Years:


Almost Three Trillion Miles Traveled Over Last 12 Months
 


    New estimates released in late August by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) show that American driving between July 2013 and June 2014 is at levels not seen since 2008, fuelling calls for greater investment in highways that must bear growing volumes of traffic.

We often talk about large loads on Alaska highways, and here’s a video of a load that traveled the Parks Highway last week. This load was 215 feet long overall, 21 feet wide and 18 feet high and had a preliminary weight estimate of 410,000 pounds.

The ability to move goods across the state is a vital part of Alaska’s economy. We build infrastructure in our state to be able to accommodate such loads.
