This image shows an area of the New Jersey Turnpikethat is closed off due to necessary repairs. A very undervalued issue in America’s current economic woes is that of our infrastructure, where the American Society of Civil Engineers claims we must spend over3.6 trillion dollars to raise American roads to standards. Over a third of American roads are currently considered to be “substandard” as well.
What should be done to fix this issue? If anything should be done,how could funds for such a project be allotted to infrastructure, or transferred from other areas of America’s budget?
