Infrastructure in the United States

August 29, 2007

Years of neglect and deferred maintenance have weakened many of the nation's bridges, highways, and tunnels. More than 73,000 bridges across the country have been found to be "structurally deficient" by inspectors. This morning on Focus we'll talk American infrastructure wih Robert Dodds and Imad Al-Qadi, both professors of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois.

Guests: Robert H. Dodds (Head of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and M.T. Geoffrey Yeh Chair of Civil Engineering, University of Illinois) and Imad L. Al-Qadi (Director of the Illinois Center for Transportation; Founder Professor of Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Illinois)
