Voters approved 94 transportation ballot measures this Election Day, resulting in $30.69 billion in transportation funding around the country. The Eno Center for Transportation has released a preliminary analysis of the results.

The bulk of that new funding is made up of two sales-tax increases in Florida, writer Alexander Laska reports. But the majority of transportation funding measures nationwide—about 68 percent—were approved.

A total of 138 transportation measures appeared before voters nationwide on November 6 (not including local road millages, which bring the total to 314.) Planetizen compiled the results of notable measures.

This election accounts for most of the transportation funding approved by voters in 2018; a total of $37.3 billion was approved through 135 ballot measures over the course of the year.
