Okay it could be some evil government movement but is it possible that it is a way of restructuring and redistributing some federal funds for needed repairs?
The infrastructure in the U.S. is sorely outdated and in need of a major overhaul. Just saying....

Oh, I agree. I've seen it.
I think they generally call it Eminent Domination. Anything goes...

The federal government can control anything, even roads, in a time of national emergency. In peacetime they can get control by withholding funding to States.
Also, many people seem to think that the federal government is this totally evil entity while state and local governments are the people on our side fighting for our rights.
Truth be told, state and local governments are every bit as corrupt, if not more so, than the federal government is.
Try bribing or coercing a congressman as opposed to somebody in state or local government and you will see which one will get results faster.
Whether states or the federal government has control of roads is about the most irrelevant argument anyone could ever bring up.
