Why a Lack of Investment in Roads & Bridges is Everyone's Problem with AASHTO's Joung Lee 

April 28, 2023

As part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), 60 billion dollars was dedicated to repair and modernize surface transportation corridors with projects in every state. The necessity of these projects was highlighted in ATRI's recent Top Truck Bottlenecks List which detailed high congestion points that burdened the supply chain and the movement of goods. In the time since IIJA was signed, what progress has been made in the rebuilding and revitalization of the nation's roads and bridges?
