The Reason Foundation has just come out with a new publication that provides valuable insight into how creative leaders across the nation are tackling traffic and infrastructure problems. Even as we encourage the debate on reforming, refocusing, and renewing surface transportation policy in America, these Innovators in Action are demonstrating better and more sustainable ways to fund, build, and operate infrastructure. In their own words, leaders like the late Texas Transportation Commission Chairman Rick Williamson, Texas Governor Rick Perry, and King County (WA) Executive Ron Sims talk about the fresh approaches they’re using to build roads, replace bridges, and expand transit.
