To drive through Maryland on I-95 northbound, I pay $3 to go through the Harbor Tunnel, and another $4 to go over the Susquehanna River bridge. I would also say that this is also one of the most heavily-travelled segments of interstate in the country. Yet the Transportation Trust Fund is broke? Where does all the money go????
The Wednesday after Christmas it was 20 miles a hour up I95 over the Susquehanna. It is such a wonderful road.
It’s quite simple. The state does exactly what the Fed does - They treat the transportation and airport “trust funds” like part of the general revenue. There are no trusts funds, and consequently, no trust of yet one more aspect of government.
