Bridge: America seeks funds for its infrastructure

Over 30% of American bridges are in a state of emergency, but this is not enough to expedite their revitalization process. Today, 31 states have spent just 33% of the federal funds earmarked for bridge maintenance. This is considered too little by the American Association of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which, in its latest report, highlights the critical condition of these infrastructures. Due to the funds allocated by the Job Act, states would have access to over $10 billion, but as of now, they have spent just over $3 billion.
