2021 Infrastructure Report Card

Peggy talks about the 2021 ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) Infrastructure Report Card, sharing background and the progress made in the past four years to restore our nation’s infrastructure. She also explains what needs to happen next.

She also discusses:

  • How a continued underinvestment in our infrastructure will cost us in GDP, jobs, and more.
  • Which five categories went up and what one category went down.
  • Three key recommendations to raise the grade—with a focus on how new approaches, materials, and technologies can ensure our infrastructure can withstand or recover quickly.
