The condition of the us infrastructure

A presentation about the state of the US infrastructure, its effect on the economy, and the ways it must be improved to ensure our country remains globally competitive.

Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers’ depicts the condition of US infrastructure in the form of a report card, using a simple A to F format. In 2017, the US received a D+, with serious deficiencies identified in roads, airports, marine ports, and the delivery of clean water and electricity. As the U.S. economy relies on reliable infrastructure to offset high wage levels and costs, these issues affect business productivity across every sector and every region of the country.

To better inform the local community about these challenges, the Harvard Club of Phoenix and Arizona State University are pleased to host Prof. Wylie Bearup the former City Engineer and Street Transportation Director for the City of Phoenix, and the current Executive Director of the Alliance for Construction Excellence at the ASU Del E. Webb School of Construction.  On Friday, January 26, 2018 at 7:15 PM to 8:45 PM, Prof. Bearup will speak in detail on the condition of the US infrastructure and it effect on our economic future.
