Marketplace Contributor Jun 15, 2015

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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
