Part of: Rebuilding America: Infrastructure Rehabilitation


In November 1982, at Governor Spellman's initiative, Washington State became one of six states participating in the National Infrastructure Analysis, sponsored by the Joint Economic Committee of the U. S. Congress. This national effort was later expanded to 22 states. With the aid and support of Dean Marshall Kaplan at the University of Colorado and Professor Phillip Bourque at the University of Washington, the Planning and Community Affairs Agency (PCAA), recently renamed Department of Community Development, sought to define Washington State's problem. This overview touches Washington's participation in national efforts to define the problem, the approach taken in determining the financial and engineering requirements for rehabilitation and new capital needs, prospects for the state's future in infrastructure rehabilitation.
