The Importance of Public Infrastructure Maintenance

Public infrastructure is composed of the built components that are government-owned and operated, and used by the general public. This includes, though is not limited to: roads, sidewalks and rights of way, aviation control buildings, sewage pipes, and ports and waterways. No matter where you go, you will use public infrastructure. Someone has to maintain them, though, and the government can’t always accomplish that in a timely way. If you have public property in or near your facility, it is proper to help maintain it.

Maintenance of public infrastructure is meant for the greater good. After all, everyone that goes to a facility or storefront has to use roads, and everyone inside takes advantage of running water systems.

If public infrastructures are allowed to decay, they put everyone who uses them at risk. If a road is falling apart, it could collapse and cause major accidents, injuring motorists and blocking streets. A plumbing break could shut down streets and create electrical hazards, costing taxpayers more money to repair than it would’ve to implement a preventative maintenance plan. Broken sidewalks make cities less walkable and nearby businesses less attractive to foot traffic.
