basically kept the funding rate at the
same level or a little bit less,” Herrmann
says. “We are not seeing any new investment from the federal government,
we’re holding our own.”
In fact, if the current funding levels remain the same, american families stand
to earn less per year due to the country’s
structural deficiencies, Herrmann says.
Public-private partnerships (P3), prevalent in europe, Canada, and australia,
but largely ignored in the united States
in recent years, could help bridge funding gaps. P3s are infrastructure projects
jointly funded by the government and a
private company or companies. “P3s are
one of the tools we need to invest in infrastructure,” Herrmann explains. “It’s a
fledgling industry [in the united States],
but we are seeing it take off a bit.”
One project, which has been touted as
a potential P3, is the Tappan Zee Bridge
replacement in new york. The new
york State Transit authority had previously requested a $2 billion government
loan for the project which will also be
funded through municipal bond issuances and toll rate hikes. “The [Tappan
Zee Bridge] is a huge crossing that is
so important for commuters, truckers,
travelers, and buses,” Herrmann says.
Where the federal government is
trailing, local governments are taking the
responsibility of finding new avenues of
funding. Virginia and maryland are just
two of the states that have either implemented or are considering implementing
funding alternatives for transportation.
maryland, for instance, is proposing raising the state’s gas tax to increase funding,
according to Herrmann.
ultimately, Herrmann points out,
the current generation has lacked
the foresight of its forebears, whose
development we are still utilizing. “We
are falling behind,” he says. “We are
living on the infrastructure building
by our grandparents and our greatgrandparents.”
“They were planning for the future,
and we haven’t,” Herrmann concludes.
“We are not maintaining what we have
in a manner that is going to look forward.” —Gus Delaporte
