It’s hard to believe that ten years have passed since the horrific collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, killing 13 and injuring 145 people on August 1, 2007. In addition to the terrible loss of life and the injuries sustained, a major commuting route for over 140,00 daily vehicles was lost for nearly fourteen months.

NY Daily News: How to get to yes on infrastructure

Op-Eds

July 2, 2017

By Ed Rendell

I consider myself a strong, partisan Democrat, but I am an American first. As an American, I hope that the Trump administration and the Congress can come together and get things done. It is my belief that if the administration were to reach out to Democrats, many would respond in good faith to help resolve the problems facing our country.

American Infrastructure Magazine: Infrastructure Beyond Just Transportation

Op-Eds

By Ed Rendell

It is almost an accepted fact that the American infrastructure is crumbling and desperately needs repair and revitalization. The public and members of the Congress, of both parties, are aware of this and will acknowledge that something must be done. Unfortunately, when you say infrastructure most American’s think mostly of roads, highways, and bridges. Although we need to take significant action to repair and revitalize our transportation network, our infrastructure needs go beyond transportation.
