This is why the US construction infrastructure is crumbling

Over the past decades, the construction infrastructure in the United States has crumbled to a frighteningly low point. The roads, bridges, dams, railway tracks, electrical network, and many other things are in dire need of repairs. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) estimates that the US needs to spend $4.5 trillion by 2025 to fix these issues. Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan Chase and one of the wealthiest bankers on Wall Street, says, “Let’s fix infrastructure.”

With some two million people per day traveling through US airports, there is a lot of work to be done to provide safety for everyone. Over two hundred thousand bridges in the US are over fifty years old. Over fifteen thousand dams where declared high hazard dams in 2016, with some of them literally crumbling and breaking. Some pipes for drinking water are over a hundred years old. Most power lines were built in the 1950s and 60s. And almost a third of the urban roads are in poor condition. So, it is going to be an enormous operation to get the powerful country that is The United States of America back in shape.
