TRANSPORTATION-INFRASTRUCTURE CAN BE A UNIFYING ISSUE, IN A DIVIDED NATION:  ALREADY, THERE ARE CALLS FOR UP TO A TRILLION DOLLARS, TO ADDRESS CRUMBLING ROADS AND BRIDGES.  STILL, ONE MAJOR CHALLENGE REMAINS--SPENDING NEW MONEY IN THE RIGHT WAYS.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO INFRASTRUCTURE-SOLUTIONS FIRM, "H-N-T-B".  IT SAYS THAT PUBLIC-SAFETY COMES FIRST--AS WE MUST REPAIR SERIOUSLY DEFICIENT ASSETS.  HOWEVER, IT BELIEVES, WE ALSO NEED TO RETHINK OUR APPROACHES, SO THAT THE NEW SPENDING ALLOWS US TO LEAPFROG, TO A NEW LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE--RATHER THAN JUST CATCHING UP TO WHERE WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOR DECADES.  HOW CAN THIS BE ACHIEVED?  THE COMPANY SAYS THAT WE SHOULD PRIORITIZE PROJECTS TRANSPARENTLY--SO THAT POLITICS ARE REMOVED.  WE SHOULD ALSO ADOPT SINGLE-CONTRACT, "DESIGN-BUILD" APPROACHES THAT SAVE MONEY.  AND, WE SHOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES THAT, FOR EXAMPLE, FACILITATE ADDING "UBER" OR "LYFT" TO LOCAL PUBLIC-TRANSIT OPTIONS--FOR WHAT'S CALLED "FIRST-MILE" AND "LAST-MILE" CONNECTIVITY.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "H-N-T-B"-DOT-COM.
