From Failing Grades to Future Systems

In Washington state, 366 of our bridges have been identified as structurally deficient and 10% of our roads are rated "poor" with many others in decline. Restoring and improving our infrastructure will take more than just money. Hear how the infrastructure of today was conceived and built, and examine the needed policy, funding and innovation to move us into the future. Join us to learn more about this grand challenge.

Speakers:
Paula Hammond, Senior Vice President and National Transportation Market Leader, Parsons Brinkerhoff
Greg Miller, Professor and Department Chair, Civil & Environmental Engineering.
