Smart Roads and Bridges

Michael Totty, of The Wall Street Journal brings an extensive article on the benefits of using smart technologies when building infrastructure.

As he says:

“It’s time the U.S. got a lot smarter.

“Federal, state and local governments are about to pour tens of billions of dollars into the nation’s infrastructure. The big question: Will we simply spend the money the way we’ve been doing for decades — on more concrete and steel? Or will we use it to make our roads, bridges and other assets much more intelligent?”

It’s facinating stuff available today.
