The 10 Highest Profile Infrastructure Projects in the US

Ryan Holeywell and Daniel Lippman evaluate the country's five biggest on-going infrastructure projects, and the five biggest ones in jeopardy. See if your region's project made the cut.

According to Holeywell and Lippman, the five largest infrastructure projects that are happening include the $6.2 billion Dulles Transit Extension, which will provide direct rail access between downtown D.C. and Dulles airport, and the $2.5 billion Crescent Corridor Expansion, which will upgrade the freight rail network that runs through 13 states and connects New Orleans to New Jersey.

Among the projects in limbo are the $3.5 billion Columbia River Crossing, which would replace the existing Columbia River bridge connecting Portland to the suburb of Vancouver, Washington, and the $7.8 billion Denver FasTracks project, which would culminate in 122 new miles of commuter and light rail and 18 miles of bus rapid transit service across the Denver area.
