Re: U.S. Bridges and Roads report card

Just another thought.....

 

Is ASCE actually a credible source or just a lobbyist organization that promotes ever expanding billions of taxpayer $$$ going to over paid construction companies....

 

Ever take a look at what it costs build a mile of highway.  It has become unbelievable, like those government contracts for the military.  Largely un restricted spending.  Not sure we couldn't lay rail track cheaper.  

 

Read their findings and answers and you will see that they are much more concerned with new construction than maintaining present structures...

 

It appears to me that they are lobbying for the pilaging of federal taxpayers to solve local problems and blaming America for their opinion which is largely based on overcrowded road systems in municipal areas.
