The trope of the nation’s “crumbling roads and bridges” was a constant fixture throughout the 2016 campaign. Now, the President-elect has promised a massive infrastructure investment plan, which has gained the potential support of many in Congress. Though campaign rhetoric and presidential promises all but ensure infrastructure will be a major issue in the upcoming year, many of the most important questions regarding America’s roads, rails, airports, and waterways have gone unaddressed: What are America’s real infrastructure needs? What is the most effective way to meet them? What should the federal government be doing to address them? What will the President’s plan look like, and – more importantly – what should it aim to accomplish?
Join us for a timely and provocative discussion that will cut through the campaign rhetoric and address the fundamental questions regarding the nation’s vital infrastructure.
