According to the report, economic growth in US metropolitan areas in the coming decades will test their infrastructures. Employment and population are two major drivers for congestion-related costs. Over the next decade, the 15 metros with the largest increases in employment will be adding at least a quarter of a million jobs each. The strain on current transportation infrastructure cannot be understated as 12 of these 15 metros already rank among the 15 highest in congestion per commuter.

They each represent many other projects awaiting approval and funding in cities and towns across America. Texas Bullet Train Cost: $10 billion A bullet train in Texas would help ease traffic in Houston and Dallas that will only get worse as the Lonestar state continues to grow. A road trip from one city to the other will take up to 6.5 hours in the next twenty years. Modeled after Japan’s Shinkansen train, the Texas Central High-Speed Rail will cut that journey to just over three hours thanks to max speeds of 250 miles per hour. South Carolina Dams Cost: $700 million Heavy rains in 2015 breached more than 50 dams in South Carolina, causing flooding throughout the state. It’s an emergency that will keep happening if the more than 600 dams rated as high-hazard aren’t modernized. Dams are aging nationwide and need more than $20 billion in repairs and upgrades. Maryland Purple Line Cost: $5.6 billion The Washington DC area has some of the worst traffic in the country. Extending the existing metro system to the suburbs by adding another metro line with 21 new stations will make everyone’s commute shorter, and will take an estimated 17,000 cars off the road. Denver I-70 East Cost: $1.7 billion Denver has an ambitious plan to take back land from the interstate by plunging part of the I-70 East underground to create a large park with sports fields and performance spaces. The project will also modernize and widen the 60-plus-year-old road to ensure its structural integrity and ease congestion within the sprawling Denver area. Miami Sea Wall Cost: $20 billion Miami is already dealing with the effects of climate change with the installation of 80 pumping stations. But when sea levels rise just 5 more feet, 96% of the city will be underwater, making it America’s most vulnerable urban area to a changing climate. To survive, it will need to significantly expand its levee system and build a multi-billion dollar seawall. Northeast Corridor Maglev Cost: $100 billion The highly populated northeast corridor of the U.S. desperately needs to expand its high-speed rail network to keep pace with the best cities in the world. Right now, the fastest train is the Acela, whose top speed is just 125 miles per hour. A maglev train connecting New York to DC could hit 300 mph and cut the commute from four hours to one. Project Clean Lake Cost: $3 billion Old sewer lines aren’t properly functioning, resulting in raw sewage streaming into Lake Erie from Cleveland during storms. Project clean lake is a 25-year renewal plan that uses a variety of green methods, including the construction of seven tunnels, to solve the problem. The Gordie Howe International Bridge Cost: $2.1 billion To allow for more people and goods to pass through the Detroit-Windsor, Canada section of the border, the Gordie Howe International Bridge will provide uninterrupted traffic flow. When complete, the project will increase daily vehicle crossings by 30%. California High-Speed Rail Cost: $65 billion Phase 1 of California’s high-speed rail project should open by 2030. It aims to connect Los Angeles to San Francisco in just three hours, compared to the nearly six hours it now takes to drive the route. It will be the first high-speed rail project on the U.S. west coast and will eventually extend to San Diego and Sacramento, the state’s capitol. Hudson River Rail Tunnel Cost: $100 billion 200,000 daily passenger trips are made through the only rail tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey. 100 years old and severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy, it badly needs an upgrade. The proposed Hudson River Rail Tunnel megaproject would modernize the existing tunnel and add a second one in order to ease congestion and wait time for commuters.

Population growth will be highest in the South, including Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Miami - four of the top five largest population gainers through 2020. Over the longer-term, the picture is not any better. Total metro area population will grow by 32% from 2012-2042 and will be especially fast in some of the nation's largest metros. Population will advance by over 50% in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, Denver, San Antonio, and by over 80% in Phoenix, Riverside, and Orlando. Houston and Dallas already rank among the most congested metros; if there is not significant investment in infrastructure congestion costs will be astronomical and will stifle long-term economic potential.

Houstons mayoral candidates participated in NOZONE: Houstons Mayoral Forum on Land Use on July 9, 2009, 7-9pm, at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, TX. The evening was moderated by conceptual artist and professor Mary Ellen Carroll, who also conceived and organized the event in conjunction with the museums exhibition No Zoning: Artists Engage Houston. The mayoral candidates—Peter Brown, Roy Morales, Annise Parker, Gene Locke, and TJ Huntley—responded (in the order above) to five questions pertaining to land use in the following areas: Legislation and Policy; Education; Transportation; Quality of Life; and Growth. Following the responses, a panel of respondents provided comments and raised further questions for the candidates. Question 4: Growth and Incentives Question proposed by Samuel Jacobson, undergraduate, School of Architecture, Rice University Respondents: Jenny Hyun, attorney; Reid Wilson, Chair, Urban Land Institute Q4: Houston has grown with the proven formula of private investment following public investment in infrastructure. The city has been able to use its authority over Municipal Utility Districts within its extraterritorial jurisdiction to guide green-field development on the citys edge—ensuring a good business climate for developers, economic growth, and the continued expansion of the property-tax base. Another potentially similar form of control over infrastructure is the citys control over mass transit and its investment in the light rail system. This has not been very effective in guiding development in the citys urban core, where developers seem more responsive to tax-based programs than direct investment in infrastructure. Given the controversy over Buckhead Investment Partnerss proposal for a high-rise at 1717 Bissonnet (Ashby High-rise), might the city have taken a more proactive approach, and provide incentives to developers and the community in order to transfer the project to a site along the Main Street Corridor and Metros light rail line? How might infrastructure be used to proactively shape or reshape Houstons already existing urban fabric? About No Zoning: Artists Engage Houston: Free from the land-use and zoning ordinances that shape other large American cities by separating residential, commercial, and industrial areas, Houston allows a mixed-use approach where disparate architectures and functions blend. In this often chaotic, jarring urban topography, many Houston artists have been able to carve out spaces and opportunities for themselves, their work, and their communities. No Zoning: Artists Engage Houston is the first museum exhibition to consider the current and past efforts of regional artists working in the urban environment, and includes work by 21 artists. The exhibition was organized by CAMHs Senior Curator Toby Kamps and Curatorial Associate Meredith Goldsmith and is on view May 9 October 4, 2009. The Mayoral Forum was held at Carrolls prototype180:table, which was designed specifically for negotiation and for staging these types of public forums and presentations.

Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon. Many developers, engineers, and architects have grand ideas, but actually pulling off breathtakingly enormous endeavors is something relatively few accomplish. Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon. Number 10. Beijing Daxing International Airport, China. Despite delays, estimates still place the initial completion stage of what will become the world’s largest airport within this decade. Once fully up an operational, the facility is anticipated to handle roughly 100 million passengers per year. Number 9. Kingdom Tower, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Among the many challenges in erecting epic buildings is securing the required funds, but this mixed-used development has finally surmounted that obstacle. Completion is currently slated for 2020, at which time the Kingdom Tower will likely be named the world’s tallest building.  Number 8. Chernobyl Arch, Ukraine. The 32,000-ton, multi-billion dollar steel structure is intended to keep lingering radioactivity from the 1986 meltdown contained so clean up can move forward. Once installed, likely in 2017, it will remain in use for at least 100 years.  Number 7. Hotel Abraj Kudai, Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the hotel’s doors open in 2017, the massive hospitality venue will boast the most rooms in the world. The 10,000 spaces it has available far outnumber the roughly 6,000 offered by the current record holder, The MGM Grand Hotel of Las VegasNumber 6. Crossrail Project, London, England. Not only is work progressing at a steady pace, it’s happening in the midst of one of the world’s most populated and bustling cities. The first station was finished in September of 2015 and is expected to start welcoming passengers in 2018. Number 5. Los Angeles Stadium, Inglewood, California. The Rams are officially returning to Los Angeles, and plans to build the team a fancy NFL-worthy stadium are underway. Making the 300-acre arena fan and team-ready is expected to take about 3 years and $2.1 billion. Number 4. Gotthard Base Tunnel, Switzerland. Boring a 35-mile hole in the base of the Swiss Alps is no small undertaking, but persistence has paid off. The tunnel, which will offer quick passage through the mountains, has arranged a grand opening celebration for June of 2016. Number 3. Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Walkway, China. For some, walking across a bridge roughly 1000 feet above solid ground isn’t quite terrifying enough. That group will no doubt be cheering come May of 2016, when this glass-bottomed, 1200-foot long pedestrian passageway – the most elevated and lengthy on the planet - opens.  Number 2. Shanghai Disney Resort, China. Disney creates magic, but it doesn’t happen overnight. After about 7 years of planning and building, the company’s latest theme park will open on June 16th. The expansive grounds include rides, attractions, characters, and entertainment. Right next door is an entire Disney-themed town.  Number 1. World One, Mumbai, India. Among the tallest buildings currently in the works, the entirely residential tower should be ready in 2017. In terms of architecture and design, the massive undertaking has been compared to Chicago’s landmark Willis Tower.  Which mega-construction project do you find most exciting?
