US infrastructure is falling apart — here’s a look at how terrible things have become
America’s infrastructure is in dire need of repairs.
The ASCE estimates the US needs to spend some $4.5 trillion by 2025 to improve the state of the country’s roads, bridges, dams, airports, schools, and more.
The report breaks down the state of infrastructure in 16 different categories. Here’s a look at each category’s final grade, according to the organization.
Airports and air traffic control systems are in serious need of an update, the report found.
With some two million people per day coming through US airports, congestion is becoming a major problem. In fact, the report estimates that 24 out of the top 30 airports in the US could soon hit “Thanksgiving-peak traffic volume” one day a week.
