Vital for safety, economic growth
Since 1998, The American Society of Civil Engineers has given a persistent D average grade to America’s infrastructure. Highways, roads, bridges, schools, dams, and water systems don’t garner much attention until they become problematic or worse, a catastrophic failure. Efficient, safe and reliable infrastructure in Southern California impacts the safety and well-being of all residents. Communities thrive when businesses can be successful and grow, stimulating job expansion and making a positive impact on the economy. Continuing to ignore the aging infrastructure does not make the issues go away. The costs to replace are always higher than those to repair. For far too long, politics have gotten in the way of maintenance, improvements and enhancements. In Southern California, real solutions must be found, especially as we face the impacts of climate change. With so much at stake, the failure to act is not an option.
More than 150 million people and billions of tons of cargo flow through our airports every year.
