The American Society of Civil Engineers calls attention, on its website, to the rapid deterioration of our nation’s highways, bridges, airports, dams, waterways, water systems, wastewater systems and other infrastructure facilities that are vital to our nation’s economy and our quality of life.  Estimating that over $1.6 trillion needs to be invested during the next five years to restore the infrastructure to only a good condition, the ASCE offers a plan of action for Congress to address this national emergency.

Implementation of this action plan, or even just portions of the plan, would represent a significant opportunity for Federal construction contractors.
