From Failing Grades to Future Systems

November 27, 2013

A region’s infrastructure is often invisible to us when it’s working as it should. But in Washington State, 366 of our bridges have been identified as structurally deficient, 10% of our roads are rated “poor” with many others in decline, and the State received a C- rating overall from the American Society of Civil Engineers. Restoring and improving infrastructure will take more than just money. Hear how the infrastructure of today was conceived and built, and examine needed policy, funding, and innovation to move us into the future. Join us to learn more about this grand challenge.
