A US Infrastructure Plan: Building for the Long Haul

Infrastructure is essential to the strength of the US economy, yet a majority of Americans say the country is not doing enough to meet infrastructure needs. A sharp focus on infrastructure investment can lead the nation toward faster economic growth and job creation, environmental protection, equal opportunity, and shared prosperity, and it can save public funds in the long run. This statement defines and explains US infrastructure, presents principles for how to meet the considerable cost of closing the US infrastructure gap efficiently, and addresses policy approaches in several categories—including transportation, water, energy, broadband internet, and cybersecurity—to inform US infrastructure investment policy.
