Bridge and highway construction is a vital part of our nation’s infrastructure and is necessary to keep the essential flow of transportation of goods moving.
There have been numerous stories over the last few years bewailing the condition of our nation’s highway bridges, for example, and the overall condition of our roadways and transportation network in general.
For example, as anyone working with bridges in the United States probably knows, of the more than 600,000 thousand highway bridges in the U.S., over 220,000 bridges need repair, according to analysis of federal infrastructure data. Of these, it’s been reported that 45,000 remain “Structurally Deficient” and in Poor Condition, while almost 295,000 bridges, or 48 percent of the total number in the country, are only rated as being in Fair Condition.
Which is all the more reason why the recently passed infrastructure bill has such significance.
Billions of Infrastructure Dollars May Mean More Construction
On November 5, 2021Congress passed a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, approving a key part of President Biden’s economic agenda.
According to one news report,
“It will deliver $550 billion of new federal investments in America’s infrastructure over five years, touching everything from bridges and roads to the nation’s broadband, water and energy systems. Experts say the money is sorely needed to ensure safe travel, as well as the efficient transport of goods and produce across the country. The nation’s infrastructure system earned a C- score from the American Society of Civil Engineers earlier this year.”
This is being seen as good news by many in the transportation and highway construction industries, and there is real potential for seeing a ramping up of construction projects over the next several years.
Which is another reason why McClain & Co., Inc. is proud to offer the very best in construction equipment rental as part of our Bridge and Highway Construction Division.
