With infrastructure policy set for the spotlight in 2018, the Urban Institute is hosting this series to look beyond funding and into the way we choose which infrastructure projects are built and which are not.
On this page, you will find short essays about what criteria policymakers should keep in mind to make effective choices and what levers they can use to do so. Visiting fellow Shoshana Lew argues for one such tool in her new brief, calling attention to asset management plans.
Our authors hold various views and roles in our infrastructure system, and while they may not all agree, we hope their collective output will be a resource for infrastructure leaders to draw on as they make decisions that will reverberate in places and people’s lives for decades.
We look forward to a thought-provoking and useful discussion.
To track the conversation, you can check this page each week. You can also follow @UrbanInstitute on Twitter.
