This year’s Infrastructure Week comes at a time when 79% of voters say investing in America’s infrastructure is a top priority. Here's what inaction is costing us:
Roads: 44% of major roadways are in poor or mediocre condition, which costs Americans about $533 every year in car repairs.
Bridges: More than 47,000 bridges have been declared “structurally deficient.” It would take an estimated 80 years to fix every one.
Water: Six billion gallons of treated water are lost every day due to broken infrastructure. More than $200 billion in economic activity would be generated by closing the water infrastructure gap.
Inaction is costing Americans an average of $3,000 every year.
It’s time to tell Washington to stop delaying. Take action and fix our infrastructure. Learn more at Infrastructure Week.
