It seems everyone is talking about infrastructure these days. As Infrastructure Week approaches, Rebuild SoCal Partnership works to raise awareness about the importance of infrastructure to SoCal communities and citizens.
Infrastructure may not be a common word people use when they chat with friends, but it’s implied every time someone complains about traffic congestion that delays daily commutes, or when Californians talk about the drought, get frustrated because the internet isn’t working, or when the electricity is out.
The Rebuild SoCal Partnership is dedicated to educating the public on the importance of infrastructure in their communities and also stresses the continued need for smart infrastructure investments now.
Internationally, 12 other countries rank better for infrastructure, and when measuring just the state of roadways, the U.S. tumbles to 17th place. The infrastructure in Southern California rates a C minus on both the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Report Card and the White House Infrastructure Report Card.
The Rebuild SoCal Partnership celebrates Infrastructure Week and provides educational information online at http://www.rebuildsocal.org, via newsletters, and on the podcast, “The Rebuild SoCal Zone,” which addresses construction trends and infrastructure projects in Southern California.
