Fifty years have elapsed since the passage of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1962 initiated the continuing, comprehensive and cooperative urban transportation planning process. The 1962 act had followed the passage of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1962 which accelerated the construction of the Eisenhower Interstate Highway System. Since these acts were passed, there have been major changes in the nation, and to some extent, these acts enabled some of those changes. Transportation planning has evolved with the nation’s changing issues and concerns. It is remarkable how enduring the transportation planning process has been. The basic fundamentals identified in the 1962 Act are still relevant today.
