14 Infrastructure Areas the U.S. Needs to Fix Before Tragedy Happens

August 1, 2013

Earlier this year the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) released its annual report card about the health of the nation's infrastructure, giving the U.S. an overall grade of "D+" and stating that $3.6 trillion in investment is needed by 2020 to avoid catastrophes that could cost lives and cripple local economies. Not only would this investment protect lives, it would also boost job creation at a time when the economy is still struggling to get back to full employment. Here are 14 of the most critical areas the U.S. needs to invest in before it becomes too late to prevent needless deaths, according to ASCE.
