In response to President Trump’s promise to “build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways”, the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Urban Research asked experts on urban development what they think the US needs to do to address urban infrastructure.

 

The responses, which included former PWD commissioner Howard Neukrug, seek to “consider the 21st century definition of infrastructure and what it means for infrastructure investments to be inclusive, environmentally sound, and evidence-based. Together, these reflections show the magnitude of infrastructure’s potential role in the coming years, both in terms of its promise and its challenges”.
