The article comments on the surge in transportation bond sales in the U.S. since the mid-1990s, as shown by the increase in new-money issuance from $12 billion in 1995 to $25 billion in 2005. Analysts, however, have raised concerns that investments continue to be inadequate in providing new capacity and maintaining the current transportation grid.
