The Best Hwy in the USA The U.S. Department of Transportation has ranked the top 10 highways in all 50 states for various reasons, but the number one reason for ranking is the Highway Trust Fund.

The trust fund is the government’s primary source of funding for highway construction.

In 2017, it received $5.5 billion, but it was only $1.9 billion of that amount.

If we look at the state highway funds, the top five states received $2.7 billion each.

That makes the top ten the top states receiving the majority of their funding from the federal government.

The 10 states that receive the most money from the trust fund are Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas and Washington.

The top 10 states receiving a higher percentage of their highway funding from states that are the most populous also are Arizona and Florida, both of which have populations of more than 6 million.

The bottom 10 states receive less than 5 percent of their revenue from the fund.

The ten states that do not receive a high percentage of the highway fund’s funds are Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington, D.C. The average state highway fund budget is around $500 million.

State funds are used to construct new roads, repair existing ones, or replace the roads that are already there.

The funds also are used for funding transit and other transportation services.
