When the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the US transportation infrastructure a grade of D+, it should have been a wake-up call. Two years later, funding approvals are still hard to come by. Bridges continue to crumble. Roadways develop potholes. Rail systems are in crisis.
Congress says that Americans won’t pay more taxes and fees for mobility. Is that true? What exactly are the funding challenges, and how are transportation leaders addressing them? Join us as we discuss the results from this year’s national survey of taxpayer opinions about transportation taxes and fees.
