Making the Grade: Bridges, Roads, Aviation, and Transit

Americans spend 6.9 billion hours delayed in traffic— that’s 42 hours per driver. In the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, ASCE graded bridges a C+, roads a D, aviation a D, and transit a D-. Collectively, transportation infrastructure widens the nation’s infrastructure investment gap, with unmet funding needs of $1.1 trillion for surface transportation and $42 billion for aviation between 2016 and 2025. So what can we do to help? Watch to find out and visit https://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/.
