Get Ready for INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK 2016 – May 16-23

Posted by Infra on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Infrastructure Week 2016Infrastructure Week is a national week of events; media coverage; and education and advocacy efforts to elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans.

The 2016 Infrastructure Week theme is “Infrastructure Matters.” It matters, in big ways and in small, to our country, our economy, our quality of life, our safety, and our communities. Roads, bridges, rails, ports, airports, pipes, the power grid, broadband… infrastructure matters to the goods we ship and the companies that make and sell them; it matters to our daily commutes and our summer vacations, to drinking water from our faucets, to the lights in our homes, and ultimately to every aspect of our daily lives.

Participate in Infrastructure Week 2016

Don’t just stand there, do something! Infrastructure Week is about showing your constituents and your community how infrastructure plays a major role in day-to-day life. Whether you work in an infrastructure-related industry, are concerned about a specific issue, or just want to make your voice heard, there are plenty of ways you can participate in the week-long event. If you have questions or ideas, feel free to contact Infra Week’s organizers.
