ASCE’s Stevens: Technology can advance U.S. infrastructure if we invest

The Interstate Highway System, made possible with the establishment of the Highway Trust Fund, revolutionized the country and left a lasting legacy, writes ASCE President Robert Stevens. But he contends the country has lost its way and needs to establish a new vision for infrastructure. ASCE’s “Infrastructure Game Changers” report notes new advances in energy, water, freight and transportation technology that, if invested in and replicated, would make infrastructure “fit for the future” and able to “handle tomorrow’s challenges.”
