Infrastructure Action

Listen 00:48:45

Guests: Robert Puentes

America’s infrastructure recently received a D+ grade from the American Society of Civil Engineers. The problem was highlighted by the devastating Amtrak crash in Philadelphia earlier this month, which claimed the lives of eight people. Today, we examine the need to repair America’s rails, roads, bridges, pipes, grids, and more, when we talk with ROBERT PUENTES, Senior Fellow with the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program.
