Talkin’ Infrastructure With Chuck Marohn, Mike McGinn, and Kevin Shephard

Last week, Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns hosted a video panel to discuss a very hot topic: How America's infrastructure got to be in such bad shape.

This "Friday News Discussion" featured former Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, Kevin Shepard, a Texas-based professional engineer and principal at the firm Verdunity, and me, representing Streetsblog.

It was especially interesting to hear a former mayor's take on these issues and what cities can do to resist the pressure to back wasteful megaprojects like Seattle's disastrous deep-bore tunnel, which McGinn paid a political price for opposing.

If you're not already plugged into these talks at Strong Towns or some of their other great work, you ought to check it out.
