Infrastructure repair in the US is a disgrace. As you point out, it isn't like we don't know what needs to be done, but it is certainly annoying to read statistics as if they have just been discovered.

The problem of course is the increasing scale. The more you build, the more you have to repair. I well recall when playing Sim City that as you extended your city, the repair costs for infrastructure really started to limited the growth of your city. Unlike your privatization proposal, the only financing as the tax base.

It makes one wonder if there is a natural scale limiting factor for infrastructure that needs to be repaired on a regular cycle.
