In addi- tion to material cost increases, the design of these structures typically requires more engineering time, material forming and layout time, and quality control time.

The most notable failure was the breaking of the levees during Hurricane Katrina, which contributed to the death of 1, people. Greater infrastructure investment would have prevented this tragedy and cost far less than the human and capital cost of the flooding that followed the hurricane.
Infrastructure is the network of structures, utilities, and facilities that supply and support our basic needs for mobility, power, water, sewer, and communications. This chapter covers large, complex infrastructure failures that are not triggered by some other hazard (e.g., an earthquake).Location: 5th Ave S, SuiteSeattle, WA, Each report in the Failure to Act series provides an objective analysis of the economic implications for the United States of its continued underinvestment in infrastructure.
Reports in the series assess the implications of present trends in infrastructure investment for the productivity of industries, national competitiveness, and the costs. However, costs go far beyond congestion.
Public health, safety, and life itself are at stake. "Every year, hundreds of deaths, illnesses and injuries can be attributed to the failure of bridges, dams, roads and other decaying structures," writes Nixon.

The energy system depends on a massive infrastructure to produce and distribute energy to households and businesses. Table gives a rough idea of the amount of fixed assets related to energy production. The infrastructure related to energy production amounted to nearly $ trillion inor 12% of the value of the net stock of nonresidential fixed assets in that year.
