Americans on both sides of the political aisle can agree on one thing: our infrastructure needs a huge upgrade. While politicians drag their feet on high-speed rail projects, fixing bridges, and building new airports, one amazing project is picking up steam.

The Great American Rail-Trail, a bike path that will connect Washington state to Washington, D.C., is over 50% complete.

The trail is being planned by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit that is working with local governments to make the dream a reality.

As a response to the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio that claimed the lives of 31 people last weekend, a human rights organization has issued a warning to all people traveling to the United States.

The Amnesty International advisory was announced "in light of ongoing high levels of gun violence in the country."

The advisory reads as follows:

IF YOU DECIDE TO TRAVEL TO THE UNITED STATES:
- Be extra vigilant at all times and be wary of the ubiquity of firearms among the population.
- Avoid places where large numbers of people gather, especially culture events, places of worship, schools, and shopping malls.
- Exercise increased caution when visiting local bars, nightclubs, and casinos.
