Ten infrastructure mega-projects America needs President Donald Trump and congress to fund and build in the near future. Try dollar shave club: http://www.dollarshaveclub.com/TDC FB for daily news: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Based on this article: http://nyti.ms/2fKSxBY Music: “Last (Moonbase Commander Remix)” by Polographia https://soundcloud.com/sweat-it-out-music/polographia-last-moonbase-commander-remix Video edited by Robin West Researched and co-written by Juliet Saunders Written, narrated, and produced by Bryce Plank Script: These are ten megaprojects the U.S. desperately needs to complete in the near future. 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.

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.

Today News - Will the us's trillion dollar investment in new infrastructure withstand tomorrow's disasters? When Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the gulf coast of Texas in late August, it led to widespread flooding in Houston and other cities and towns. In some places more than 15 inches of rain fell in a 24hour period, quickly inundating roads, highways and entire neighborhoods. Damage from the storm is expected to be in the billions of dollars.
