China has opened the road between Pakistan and China ... 880 KM (530 miles)

Cost of the  construction = 65 billion dollars. Infrastructure
completed in 36 months.  How could they design it, and then build it
so fast?

Joe Manchin needs to get on board.  West Virginia needs help with 21st century industries, and an updated infrastructure should help.

But apparently the GOP don’t want to burden the American people with an overhaul to our crumbling infrastructure, as well as expand it for the 21century, even with a majority of Republican voters in favor of it, just because!!!???  Maybe they want to preserve the “Magnificent Legacy” of Donald Trump, and continue another 4 years of doing nothing about infrastructure for the country!

In West Virginia the King Coal Highway is progressing but slowly.

There was rumors spread during the 1990's it will follow the old Route 52 mile by mile - WILL NOT.

This project will go down in construction history as the LEAST intrusive project in West Virginia - very few will be force to move regarding eminent domain.

The King Coal Highways is a corridor of I-73/74 which will link Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, with Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with a connection to Chicago.

Apparently they didn't build it at all.  But if they did, the speed could be attributed to the vast availability of cheap labor.  ;)

While the commercial tourist interests in Myrtle Beach push hard for I-73, it does not seem to be gaining any real traction.  I think a part of it was built in NC, but that was really just a connector to an existing interstate.  States farther north than WV don't seem to be interested at all in it.

West Virginia citizens should pay for most of the infrastructure upgrades needed in their state.

Red States keep takes low,  but then wish to use Federal dollars (where Red states pay less into this than they receive back) for such improvements.

Seems will connect much farther north to Canada.

Probably a bit too sweeping of a generalization.  WV is in the middle of the pack.   Federal highway funds mostly come from use taxes and fuel taxes, and not general income taxes.

Reddish-Purple FL and NC and Red SC, OK and TX are in the top 15 for state funding vs. federal funding.

Problem is the funding, the trillions it will take just to up keep what we already have.  Maybe if the government didn't squander tax payer dollars.

Maybe if the Republicans didn't let billionaires and corporations pay zero in tax this would not be a problem.

Why should you have to pay for it all?

Tell it to Mitch McConnell, who said there would be no GOP votes on the Infrastructure Bill

Again you have things backward.  The Republicans under Trump passed the tax bill giving all of the money to the billionaires and corporations.

Now that Democrats want to do something about it and to make things equitable it is you, the brainwashed kool aid drinkers who are saying no way.

How can you blame that on democrats?

Myrtle Beach has celebrated Can-Am days since the 1950's or so.  Seems Canadians did not mind the cooler temperatures and cold water during that part of the year.

Still do not anticipate it being finished any time soon, if ever.  Too many alternative interstates are close by and MYB has a real airport now.

They're hoping the West Virginia section be finished by the end of fall.  You're right in there is no enthusiasm of I-73 north of our state.

Used the old excuse in starting it, will bring prosperity.  What a crock, the same thing was said with I-119 back during the 1980's / '90's, all it did was established Wal Mart, killed small towns and brought in drugs from Detroit.

Biden releases state-by-state breakdown of what needs fixing in his $2TN infrastructure plan that Republicans have called a 'dog's breakfast of slush funds for Democrat pet projects'

Biden releases breakdown of what needs fixing in his $2trillion infrastructure plan

Republicans slammed President Joe Biden's $2.7 trillion infrastructure plan as a 'dog's breakfast of slush funds' for Democrats ahead of bipartisan meeting at the White House to discuss the package.   Biden will host four GOP lawmakers - along with four Democratic ones - on Monday to discuss his massive infrastructure plan, which Republicans have criticized for containing more than traditional infrastructure projects.  The White House argues all its items - including money for improved schools and the climate - contributes to the nation's infrastructure and it released a state-by-state break down to show how the plan's benefit across the country.
