California localities anticipate how to meet infrastructure, transportation demands
from Government Technology
The president's recent signing of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act was the impetus for a conversation among local leaders in California about transportation and infrastructure funding in the state — a state that expects to see its population increase to more than 50 million people within the next 35 years. Though the FAST Act will mean more money rolling into state and local transportation coffers, it won't be enough to repair all of the nation's aging infrastructure. And this aging — and in some cases failing — infrastructure coupled with the expected population boom means that transportation officials and city leaders said agencies will have to plan better to ensure the state keeps pace with those who rely on it to get from one place to another.
