Now in its 3rd year, Infrastructure Week is a national week of high-profile events, media coverage, focused advocacy, and other efforts around the country to build momentum for revitalization of America’s economic competitiveness through rebuilding American infrastructure. Led by groups representing America’s business, labor, and policy-making leadership, Infrastructure Week convenes an unprecedented, broad, non-partisan, coalition united around the message that investing in infrastructure is Investing in America’s Economy. The Week challenges policy-makers and the public to address head-on the challenges facing U.S. infrastructure, to move beyond short-term fixes and deferred maintenance, and to envision the innovative solutions, technologies, policies and investments that will bring America’s aging infrastructure into the 21st century.
