Responsible Infrastructure

Our infrastructure here in Montana is in need of improvement which means making an investment and spending money, which I am not always in favor of the government doing. Sometimes though it's not the fact that we spend the money as it is how and on what that bothers me. Our infrastructure for moving people and products however is an area we have no choice on if we want to keep our society and economy moving in a forward direction. I do have a problem when we waste money on these things. I can name certain projects dealing with our roads and bridges where large amounts of money have been spent wrongly. Such as 10's of thousands of dollars on a small concrete bridge crossing a creek someone could jump across when the bridge in place was in good shape and the only thing it could have used was railings put in place for a couple of thousand dollars at worst. Another area is reworking the same stretch of highway every couple of years, when spending a little extra initially and doing a better job would increase the lifespan of the road for many years to come at a lower cost in the long run. Then there seems to be shortsightedness on some projects. One such project is right there in our capitol city of Helena. On Custer Ave a couple years back there was road improvements made and a bridge widening done due to increased traffic and new development. Now what is happening? It is all being redone again. What caused this? Shortsightedness and the need by those in charge to waste taxpayers money. With the development being done in the area it didn't take much to see when the original roadwork and bridge widening was done that it was almost obsolete by the time the job was finished. With a little reworking of how we go about these projects and shooting for a higher standard we would have not just the few infrastructure jobs done that we do but others as well giving us a more sound, updated and future oriented roadway and street system. With insisting on higher standards we also reduce the need for constant expensive repairs, leaving us with extra money to expand even more of our roadway system, making them better, faster, and more safe.
Infrastructure is not limited to our roadways alone. There are many other aspects included within this "Umbrella" phrase. Just for the purpose of this posting I did keep it to a brief rundown of roads and bridges. In future postings I will go into more detail not just on roads and bridges but also the other areas of infrastructure as well. This is an area where we must put forth the effort to improve and be ahead of the curve. Although there are many, many more like myself who hate to see the government even think of spending money, infrastructure is as bad as I hate to say it, the governments responsibility.

I read out the post and i found that there is a need of rebuidding the Montana infrastructure because there is lots of money spent wrongly on building briges and roads so it needs money from the government to rebuild it infrastructure to keeps continue the progress...
