RAND Corp. released a report on U.S. water and transportation infrastructure entitled, “Not Everything is Broken: The Future of U.S. Transportation and Water Infrastructure Funding and Finance.” The report takes the stance that the state of U.S. infrastructure is not as dire as it often is portrayed, while making recommendations for funding infrastructure improvement projects over the next 10 years.

“In fact, not all transportation and water infrastructure in the United States is falling apart–far from it,” said Debra Knopman, Martin Wachs, Benjamin M. Miller, Scott G. Davis and Katherine Pfrommer, the paper’s authors. “While highway, bridge and water system maintenance backlogs exist in many places, the data does not support a picture of precipitous decline in total national spending or in the condition of the assets.”
