Infrastructure Week is a national week of education and advocacy that brings together American businesses, workers, elected leaders, and everyday citizens around one message: It’s #TimeToBuild. From May 15-19, leaders and citizens around America will highlight state of our nation’s infrastructure – roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, the energy grid, and more – and encourage policymakers to invest in the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous, and safe.
Why Join the Conversation?
America’s infrastructure is crumbling, inefficient, and inadequately designed to meet 21st century needs. Yet it is also one of the rare issues on which both political parties, the business and labor communities, and leaders from the White House to State Houses to City Halls, find common ground. In the private sector, and at the state and local levels, innovators from the public and private sectors are investing in new projects, policies, and technologies to put America back in the fast lane.
What happens during this week?
During Infrastructure Week, organizations and individuals around America – from trade associations and local chambers of commerce to mayors and individual citizens – host events, tour new and innovative projects, talk about infrastructure in national, local and social media, and show policymakers at all levels of government the breadth and diversity of support for long-term, sustainable infrastructure funding and finance.
