Wisconsin’s Bridges and Roads Infrastructure Report Card grades are C+ (mediocre: requires attention) and D+ (poor: at risk) respectively. The typical bridge is at or near the end of its design life and more than one-third of drivable roads are in fair or below condition. Yet, recent efforts by state decision-makers have stalled in addressing both long- and short-term funding needs.
Authors will give 20-minute presentations and then begin a live conversation with panelists and the audience on raising the grades for bridges and roads.
