North Carolina’s Crumbling Infrastructure Far More Costly Once It Caves In
The President of the North Carolina Section of ASCE, Duane Bent, recently submitted an article that has been posted to the NewsObserver. The article, titled North Carolina’s Crumbling Infrastructure Far More Costly Once It Caves In, discusses the recent North Carolina Infrastructure Report Card and how a lack of maintenance and improvements to our existing infrastructure may end up costing more over time.
For too long we have been told that funding is not available to fix our ailing infrastructure systems. We need to let our leaders know that even in lean financial times, infrastructure is worth investing in. Much like a leaky roof on a home, the longer we wait to act, the more it will cost.
It's a wonderful article and we encourage our members to read it and share it with others.
