Few arguments exist questioning the worthiness of investments in roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, airports, or any other type of built infrastructure. But arguments do exist on how to manage, fund, and prioritize them. Similarly, most agree that when a community has roads without potholes, healthy schools, and reliable utilities, it drives economic success.
LMI has over 30 years of experience in helping clients plan and prioritize investments for both new and existing infrastructure programs. We believe in the multitude of societal benefits that come from infrastructure programs, projects, and spending. Through lessons learned, LMI has gleaned a few important takeaways that we think are required for any new national infrastructure program. They include the following:
- A national infrastructure leader and champion
- A centralized infrastructure bank
- A national project prioritization and analytics framework.
