It’s a word plastered all over the news lately. From dilapidated roads to crumbling bridges, infrastructure –  or the fundamental, underlying facilities our cities and towns rely on to help them function – are in desperate need of repair, upgrade, or replacement.

But, just what does infrastructure refer to anyway? Actually, it refers to a great number of things we take for granted (or overlook) on a daily basis. Examples include…

  • Clean water supply: treatment, pumping, and distribution (along with sewage treatment)
  • Police & Fire departments / Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
  • Electricity generation (power plants) and transmission lines
  • Telephone, cable, and fiber optic systems
  • Bridges, roadways, tunnels, levees and dams
  • Railways / airports / seaports
  • Mass transit systems
  • Hospitals
  • Libraries

Consider a time when you’ve been inconvenienced by something like an emergency bridge repair in your own neighborhood… Indeed, the state of our nation’s infrastructure is a topic we can’t afford to ignore any longer.
