The divisive and dispiriting 2016 campaign season exposed and exacerbated some deep divisions in our country. Remarkably, it also revealed one area where our elected leaders — the new president and the new Congress — could come together to move the country forward: infrastructure investment.
It is undeniable that America’s infrastructure decline must be addressed. Crumbling roads, distressed bridges, crowded airports, and clogged ports slow commerce and wreak havoc on the global supply chain. They hinder manufacturers’ ability to get products to customers, workers to our shop floors, and raw materials to our factories. Lives are at risk, and our global economic leadership is threatened.
