Building America’s Future - South Carolina (BAF-SC)
South Carolina’s infrastructure strains go beyond just surface transportation. Our port system, on which the state’s economy depends, needs significant improvements. We must not allow South Carolina to lose its competitive edge in attracting new businesses and new jobs due to these infrastructure deficiencies. Unless we make significant changes in our course and direction, our infrastructure will continue to deteriorate and a real opportunity to restore South Carolina’s economy will be lost. We deserve better.
Building America’s Future of New Hampshire (BAF-NH)
New Hampshire’s infrastructure strains go beyond just transportation. Energy costs have skyrocketed as our electric grid can barely keep up with demand. This issue, along with our roads, has caused New Hampshire to lose its competitive edge when attracting new businesses and new jobs. Unless we make significant changes in our course and direction, our infrastructure will continue to deteriorate and a real opportunity to restore New Hampshire’s economy will be lost. We deserve better.
Mesa, Arizona Mayor John Giles explains why infrastructure investment is important in his community.
The Federal Highway Administration estimates that 25 percent of congestion is attributable to traffic incidents, around half of which are crashes. According to a study published by the Eno Center for Transportation, a 10 percent autonomous vehicle market penetration rate would result in an estimated 15 percent decrease in freeway congestion delays for all vehicles, mostly due to smoothed flow and bottleneck reductions.
