Roughly two-thirds of Americans — 62% — believe that, as a country, we are not doing enough to meet our infrastructure needs. The top 50 strategic infrastructure projects in the United States are classified in the report using ten sectors based on the type of physical system or asset at the core of each investment.
Projects are the “alphabet” of a comprehensive infrastructure plan. They are the specific enterprises through which government and industry translate need into critical modern systems and services. As national leaders continue to develop and debate a federal infrastructure plan, and governors and mayors grapple with urgent investment needs that cannot wait for a national initiative, it is critical we develop a strategy based on the opportunities and lessons of specific projects.
