Private Takeover?


So, with this latest Minnesota bridge disaster, there are talks about a private takeover of bridge construction paid for by private tolling. So, it is a safe assumption that a private company could create a bridge more efficiently than the government, strictly because of the incentive to do so. But, how will this improve safety or accountability?

I don't know how it does. The only thought I'd have would be that this is the easiest way to hide/postpone the costs of making the billions of dollars in infrastructure improvements the nation probably needs
