This week, Marketplace’s sustainability desk explores the state of infrastructure across the U.S., and we’re teaming up with Waze to look at transportation. Check out the map below to see the potholes, construction, and other traffic hazards on one of the largest infrastructure projects in the world: America’s roadways. And post your own reports using the instructions below.
If you want to be part of our series and report bad infrastructure on your own commute:
1. Download and open Waze
2. Select the “Report” icon in the lower right corner
3. Press “Hazard” and choose the problem
4. Describe the problem and add the hashtag #WeakLink
5. Hit send!
Safe-driving reminder: We want everyone to drive safely, so please only use this feature if a passenger can assist you or if you’re at a complete stop. Or use it if you’re walking or at home.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
