Extent of Unobligated Balances for Demonstration Projects
GAO-01-985R: Published: Aug 31, 2001. Publicly Released: Oct 1, 2001.
Congress has funded many highway demonstration projects either through legislation authorizing surface transportation programs or annual appropriations for the Department of Transportation. As of April 2001, 28 highway demonstration projects with unobligated balances were no longer needed by the states because, according to the Federal Highway Administration, the projects are completed. These projects accounted for about $14.6 million in unobligated funds.
