Survey: Americans support infrastructure investment

Seventy-seven percent of Americans think the federal government should increase spending to repair the nation’s crumbling roads, bridges and transit systems, according to a report from HNTB Corp. The survey found that Americans would be willing to spend more on transportation expenses or taxes if the money was put toward long-term transportation improvements. To pay for it, tolling roads and bridges was a more popular option than increasing fuel, sales, income or property taxes.
