State Highway Projects Get Less Federal Funds Than You'd Think

Remember when we learned a while back that the federal-state split on the $810 million Marquette Interchange project - - lauded as completed early time and under budget - - was about 50-50, not the 80% Federal-20% State that had been the earlier standard?

Michael Horne explains why, and the implications for bigger projects looming - - such as the $1.9 billion I-94 North/South plan, with a possible state pricetag of about $970 million.
