Part of Infrastructure Week 2015

HBO’s satirical news magazine Last Week Tonight with John Oliver recently skewered America’s lackadaisical attitude toward infrastructure: Our infrastructure is crumbling, and we don't seem to care. When infrastructure fails, as we are allowing it to do with the unrelenting march of time and willful underinvestment, it’s not funny at all—indeed, it can be tragic.

Infra Week line-up

Join the Metropolitan Planning Council, Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program and Public Affairs Committee of the Union League Club of Chicago for Broke, Broken and Out of Time, a half-day forum where decision-makers, elected officials and thought leaders will come together to identify how Illinois can finance, build, deliver and maintain world-class transportation and water infrastructure.

The event will feature Ill. Dept. of Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn, Brookings Institution's Rob Puentes, Divya Shah of Infrastructure Ontario and others. Register today to hear from experts and shape solutions that Illinois is poised to enact in the coming months.
