Our Crumbling Infrastructure

By Team Writer / January 15, 2017

While this article is short and doesn’t have as much to do with construction as the name of the site might imply, it’s still important nonetheless. The election of 2016 was a big deal that shook the nation, if not the world, and a few things kept coming up with it — one of them the “infrastructure” of the United States. “Our Crumbling Infrastructure” talks about what this actually means, and exactly how the infrastructure of the US is crumbling down.

Key Takeaways:

  • The last general election propelled the words ‘The Nation’s Infrastructure’ to become the catch-all buzzword for everything from bad bridges to job creation projects to toxic tapwater to unhackable power grids.
  • President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign trail proposal of spending $1 trillion to repair the country’s infrastructure is, besides promising to be an interesting study in funding, vague.
  • Discussions on what items The Nation’s Infrastructure actually includes, whether to repair them or start over, and who is going to oversee the $1 billion checkbook are crisscrossing the media.
