Fixing America’s crumbling bridges and roadways requires a ‘czar,’ infrastructure expert says

President Donald Trump has proposed a plan to spend nearly $1 trillion to rebuild the nation’s deteriorating airports, roads and bridges, but the issue could require an “infrastructure czar,” expert Barry LePatner told CNBC on Tuesday. “We lack the political will and the political leadership to address this problem in a comprehensive way,” LePatner said in an interview on CNBC’s “Power Lunch.” “If we put on a large-scale infrastructure program that was dedicated … we will have an addressing of this issue.” LePatner, an attorney, is the author of a book titled, “Too Big to Fall: America’s Failing Infrastructure and the Way Forward.”
