The Infrastructure Deficit

     Our national infrastructure is a vital part of nation’s health and vitality.  But what is the state of our national infrastructure?  To put it bluntly, not very good.  Twenty-Five percent of our nation’s bridges are obsolete.  Thirty-Two percent of our roads are in poor or mediocre condition.  The poor condition of our infrastructure costs Americans billions and also poses public safety issues.

In this episode we discuss this year’s release of the ASCE’s (the American Society of Civil Engineers) infrastructure report card, which found our nation’s infrastructure to have a grade of D+.  We detail the nation’s almost failing infrastructure grade and discuss the actions that our elected leaders are taking and not taking to address the issue.
