Roads and bridges are the arteries that keep our economy moving. But years of neglect have left the nation’s infrastructure and transportation systems in a state of disrepair. As federal dollars are on the way to help, the electric grid and municipal water systems have joined the list of critical infrastructure needing improvements nationwide.
There is bipartisan agreement that more needs to be invested to upgrade our infrastructure, but how can cities and states fix what’s broken today and prepare for the transportation system of tomorrow?
The Atlantic will gather policymakers, experts and innovators to lay out the issues and the way forward to bring America’s infrastructure and transportation systems into the 21st century.
