BLUEPRINT AMERICA

In recent years a little noticed shift has been transforming suburbia: the home of the middle class has become the home of the working poor. As a result, roadways that were built for the car are now used by a growing population that can’t afford to drive. The consequences can be deadly.

Blueprint America on Need to Know from suburban Atlanta where getting to the other side of the road is nothing to take for granted. Correspondent John Larson and producer Fae Moore report.

About Blueprint America
www.pbs.org/blueprintamerica
“Blueprint America on PBS reports on the country’s next infrastructure system and, at the same time, the state of the current system: From transportation — car, bus, light rail, train and plane — to the water supply to the energy grid to city development and planning. In documentaries and news segments, Blueprint America — with other programs such as NOW on PBS, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Exposé on Bill Moyers Journal, Worldfocus and Public Radio — looks at how rebuilding America’s infrastructure can rebuild the struggling economy and reshape the national landscape.”
