“Not since 1954 when President Eisenhower began the interstate system has there been a grand plan for even one mode of transportation, let alone a national strategic infrastructure policy.”
PT Speaks with Congressman John Mica (FL), Ranking Member: House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure
PT: What are the most pressing infrastructure problems facing the country today that average American’s might not consider?
Mica: They might not think about it, but congestion is probably the biggest issue we’re dealing with from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Whether it’s highways, airports, seaports or rail, all of our infrastructure is stretched to the limit.
