Companion guide to the ASCE 150th Anniversary museum exhibit.

This book is a consumer’s-eye view of infrastructure—the technological networks that keep society connected and define modern life—and highlights the relationship of the public to civil engineers, the professionals who design the infrastructure that forms the foundation of the world. Each chapter of this highly illustrated book explores a fundamental question behind infrastructure and the role it plays in individual lives. Who's responsible? How safe is it? Why so big? It it available? How much does it cost? How long will it last? The answers to these questions illuminate the invisible links between our private lives and public works.

The book invites readers to examine their experiences and expectations while considering the role of civil engineering as innovators, builders, and managers.
