While the current state of America’s infrastructure is poor, great efforts are being made in order to remedy this problem. Pennsylvania has announced that “more than 90 projects worth more than $200 million were under construction or bid in 2017 in the state Department of Transportation’s northwestern region.”
There were already great strides made already, as we’ve written about previously. In addition to these projects, “construction was underway on some major multi-year projects and other work that was bid in 2016 for construction in 2017.” This demonstrates a continued emphasis on restoring and improving our crumbling infrastructure.
Pennsylvania has shown a great drive to make their infrastructure great, and other states should follow their lead. The GAIN coalition is thrilled to see this type of commitment, and we hope to see an even greater focus on our infrastructure come into being during 2018.
