Raising policymaker and public awareness about the importance of infrastructure to the U.S. economy, job creation and security will be the focus of about 100 events May 15-19 in the Nation’s Capital and across the country.

Now in its fifth year, Infrastructure Week aims to join businesses, citizens and elected leaders around the message that it’s “Time to Build” our nation’s infrastructure – roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, and more. ARTBA has joined with more than 250 industry affiliates to encourage investment in the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous, and safe.
