Site Content[edit]

InfrastructureUSA's web content is largely divided into four sections: The Infra Blog, Infra Views, Show Us Your Infra and Infra Polls.[1]

The Infra Blog[edit]

Offers original content, opinion pieces, and interviews with national infrastructure figures.[2][3] The interviews are published as audio clips and a downloadable transcript.

Subjects include:

Infra Views[edit]

  • Infra Views aggregates reports and studies from hundreds of think tanks, advocacy groups, trade and professional associations and government agencies. Much of the content is available as an excerpt online, with an option to download the full version as a PDF.

Show Us Your Infra![edit]

  • Showcases visual-based media from external sources like Flickr, YouTube and Vimeo
  • Anyone can create a username and post directly to the Show Us Your Infra! page

Infra Polls[edit]

  • Poses questions related to infrastructure with several possible responses. Users "vote" for an answer, and the current tally is displayed as a bar graph.

Funding[edit]

Primary seed funding for InfrastructureUSA comes from: American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), AECOM, New York Building Foundation, John Hennessy III, P.E., and Anderson Productions Ltd.
