Rebuilding with Public-Private Partnerships

As Houston recovers from Hurricane Harvey, Florida digs out from Irma, and Hurricanes Maria and Jose threaten, one thing has become painfully clear: Such storms inflict massive damage on a region’s infrastructure. Roads have been washed away and buckled, the foundations of bridges weakened, water and sewage systems inundated and damaged, electrical systems rendered inoperable, schools, hospitals, and courthouses left unusable. It has taken years and billions of dollars to repair the enormous damage to New York’s critical infrastructure inflicted by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 — and the work remains unfinished.
