It’s no secret that a backlog of needed improvements and dearth of funding has left us with some infrastructure challenges – congested roadways, overflowing sewers, transit systems that break down. But that’s only half of the story.
By choosing to invest, communities across the country are seizing the opportunity to build infrastructure in innovative ways and modernize – taking advantage of lower prices, new project delivery methods, and innovative engineering and technology to transform their public spaces and position themselves ahead of the pack for economic growth.
We have surveyed engineers and public officials across the country to identify key game changers across the major infrastructure sectors – how we deliver drinking water, treat wastewater, build roads and bridges, design transit systems, generate and distribute energy, and move goods to market.
We’re at a critical moment in deciding how, and if, we will further invest in our infrastructure. Imagine what more we can do if we seize the opportunity to replicate these engineering innovations.
