Cecilia Kang, technology reporter for The New York Times, explores how technological innovations can help revitalize America’s fraying infrastructure at this special TimesTalks Tech event in Washington, D.C. Will tech advances like driverless cars, automated freight and high-speed passenger rail and smart power grids lead a transformation of our roads, bridges, rails and cities that most lawmakers and corporate America agree is long overdue? Joining Kang to assess the possibilities are Anthony Foxx, chief policy officer of Lyft and former U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary; U.S. Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.) who co-chairs the Congressional bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus; Barbara Humpton, C.E.O. of Siemens USA and Shannon Valentine, Secretary of Transportation for the Commonwealth of Virginia.

One-hour reception to follow event.
