APRIL UNITS on AGING INFRASTRUCTURE: Bridges, Pipes, Roads and Dams
League discussion units in April will look at local issues of aging infrastructure and the high costs of repair and replacement. Infrastructure includes major public works such as roads, bridges, water and sewer systems, dams and public transit. The American Society of Civil Engineers has given infrastructure nationally a grade D and warned of major safety concerns with aging systems. What does this mean for the Cincinnati region? What systems are vulnerable and who is responsible for repair and replacement? And the most difficult question, how are we going to pay for it?
Unit meeting times and locations are listed below. Background study pages are available here. A discussion leader briefing will be held at the League office Wednesday, March 29 at 6:30 p.m. Each unit is asked to have a representative at the briefing. Unit meetings are open to any League member and to the public.
