Crumbling Public Infrastructure Increases Business Costs

Crumbling public infrastructure adds to business costs

One in nine U.S. bridges is “structurally deficient” and 42% of major urban highways are congested according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. This poor infrastructure could cost companies an extra $430B in operating expenses by 2020 and cause an additional $1.7T in lost sales. Detours to avoid these public hazards are costly in terms of time, gas, and vehicle wear and tear.
