America’s infrastructure is woefully underfunded and its condition is too often severely degraded. Forecasts suggest that our nation’s infrastructure investment shortfall will be $1.1 trillion by 2020, increasing to $4.7 trillion by 2040. Managing in this tight fiscal climate is one of our metropolitan, state and our nation’s military's greatest challenges. This distinguished panel of operators, procurers, and finance & information management experts will explore innovative ways that regional and state leaders have navigated this difficult environment to finance the building of new, as well as the repair of existing, critical transportation systems.
