Congress has just appropriated the largest amount of money in history for public works; nearly $220 billion dollars over the next six years. The cash will go for highways, bridges, mass transit systems, and bike and pedestrian paths.

He explains that in many cases, local governments will decide if they want more highways or more public transit.
