I don't think the solution to the infrastructure problem is as simple as the three options listed. More money should be allowed to stay with each state to manage their own roadwork and bridge projects.

I believe there is adequate money, the problem is letting the federal government get its hands on it. Allow ALL gas taxes collected to stay with the state which collects them, with the condition it may only be spent on roads and bridges. If the state needs more money they can increase their state gas tax. Then let Congress fund the FHWA as a research and advisory agency only.

Remember also that billions of dollars a year are taken from the trust fund to pay for "Transit" (mostly bus and rail systems) - and Transit puts effectively nothing back into the system.
