Arkansas’ Highways Won’t be Fixed Without Guaranteed Ongoing Funding
As America’s infrastructure continues to age without sustainable investment, it’s worth considering that much of our road system was built during President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s administration.
What was new in the 1950s is now old, and increased federal, state and local funding are imperative to ensure a robust economy and a good quality of life for Americans.
Thomas Dickinson is general manager of McGeorge Contracting Company in Pine Bluff, Ark., and president of the Arkansas branch of the Associated General Contractors (AGC). A transportation stakeholder who has seen the impact of less construction jobs and road projects in Arkansas, Dickinson discusses how the funding crisis affects his state.
AGC is a member of the Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM) Coalition.
