Bridges, roads in better shape?

A new report from the U.S. Department of Transportation suggests that more of the country's roads and bridges are in good shape than a decade ago, a premise that runs counter to the commonly held belief that our infrastructure is crumbling. About 57% of this nation's roads have "good ride quality," according to the report, up from 46% in 2000. That still leaves almost half of our roads with less that good ride quality, though, so there's plenty of room for improvement.

What do you think about this report? Is your firm involved in any road or bridge improvement projects?
