Background — transportation and infrastructure has gone from a running Capitol Hill punchline to a leading national public policy debate. Beyond the Beltway, transportation impacts everyday people and businesses in myriad ways, making it a prime topic for local news coverage. From COVID-19 response to driving children to school, the way we travel and the infrastructure we use to get there matters a great deal.
