According to a report by Reuters, most Americans wouldn't mind a hike in their taxes and tolls if it means better roads and transportation infrastructre. In fact, a survey by HNTB, an architecture, civil engineering consulting and construction management firm in Kansas City, Miss., found that nearly three-fourths of those polled would be okay with increased costs. On top of that, 84 percent of those that took the survey said that they would be even more in favor of those costs if it was "mandated by law to be spent only on the infrastructure projects for which they were intended," according to Reuters.

This poll was conducted by Russel Rearch, and asked over 1,000 Americans over 18 years old in the middle of July. According to Reuters, the margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percent.

As most are aware, the U.S. is currently experiencing an infrastructure crisis, made even more apparent with recent natural disasters in Texas and Florida. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, the country is expected to fall short of $1.44 trillion in infrastructure funding of what the country is expected to need through the next decade, as noted by Reuters.
