With the need for infrastructure investment greater than ever, we're still waiting on Washington.
We’re all still waiting for Washington to move on infrastructure. Decades of deferred maintenance have built up and now costs hundreds of billions of dollars every year in unnecessary time, fuel and deadly accidents. While our old systems decay, we dare not dream of the next generation infrastructure that could give us the edge on our global competition, many of whom are way ahead of us in the infrastructure race.
But we need to start dreaming big again. Too many communities aren’t aging well. And today we find our built environment badly neglected at a time when changes in our natural environment seem to be accelerating. Meanwhile, our rapidly advancing economy is changing the needs of households, businesses and government at all levels.
