Why the U.S. Transportation System Is Falling Apart

Even the strongest structures eventually fall victim to natural law, but the process is accelerated by human neglect. When will the next bridge collapse? Absent regular care and maintenance, “it’s not a question of whether – it’s a question of when,” says Richard Grant, a principal with Russell Corrosion Consultants.
