Infrastructure Week is coming to a close as businesses and organizations across the country have dedicated the past several days to focus on America’s infrastructure challenges. Infrastructure Week is especially relevant in Ohio, which is home to five interstates, 13 inter-modal rail terminals, 11 ports, and four major airports.
According to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), of Ohio’s 122,987 miles of public roads, 18% are in poor condition and 6% of Ohio’s bridges are rated structurally deficient. The Cleveland Section of the ASCE has given Northeast Ohio an overall grade point average of “D+” for the region’s infrastructure.
You can show your support for making critical infrastructure a top priority in Ohio and across the U.S. by signing The National Association of Manufacturers’ petition to federal lawmakers. 5/16/2019
