Peggy and Henry Petroski, Aleksandar S. Vesic distinguished professor emeritus of civil engineering, Duke University, talk about infrastructure and the Highway Trust Fund. He says the interstate highway system was established with legislation from the mid-1950s and part of that was a creation of a fund—which was going to be funded with a federal gasoline tax.

They also discuss:

  • The complication involved with passing new legislation.
  • His research on the role of failure in successful design.
  • If there are shifts with generations and leadership.
