What is infrastructure?
Simply put, it's the physical backbone of a community. It helps:
- efficiently move people and goods and get them to where they need to be;
- provide safe drinking water;
- keep the air and water clean; and
- offer public facilities for recreation, sports and culture.
Infrastructure is all around you: roads, sidewalks, public transportation systems, water treatment plants, museums and galleries, sports facilities, parks and trails, just to name a few.
