Weekly Poll (12)


The 2016 Better Roads Bridge Inventory indicates that a greater percentage of American bridges are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete than were last year. What's the best way to address this problem?


Shortly after the U.S. election, the American Institute of Architects issued, and then apologized for, a statement in which the organization said its members "stand ready to work with" President-elect Donald Trump on schools, hospitals and infrastructure projects. Was the apology warranted?


Surveys have been sharing Americans’ receptivity to other ways to help fund transportation infrastructure. Which options do you think offer the best chance of supporting necessary bridge and highway projects?


The United States Department of Energy recently awarded $137 million in funding to organizations, including one Fortune 500 coatings company, to foster development of technologies to improve commercial and passenger vehicle efficiency. Should large, for-profit companies be eligible for such grants?


New Jersey recently called for a stop to any transportation infrastructure work that was deemed "nonessential," because the state's legislature couldn't agree on a funding mechanism. Is a summer roadwork shutdown a viable option for a government that's having trouble lining up money?


Should more states consider usage fees for motorists in order to help fund transportation infrastructure?


Do you take advantage of funds made available by the federal government for surface transportation or other projects?


The House of Representatives recently passed a six-year transportation bill, but it includes funding for only the first three years. To “unlock” the last three years of spending authorization, Congress must come up with the money first. If the bill becomes law, where do you think new funding should come from?


President Obama has proposed a “Fix it First” program for infrastructure, funded by a public-private Partnership to Rebuild America. What should Congress do with these ideas?


Congress is considering slashing EPA’s and OSHA’s authority and/or funding. How will this affect the coatings industry?


What do you think of President Obama’s six-year, $556 billion infrastructure/transit proposal?


What will it take for the U.S. to address its infrastructure crisis?
