Across America: 60+ events nationwide, 150 organizations, seven days to tell America why, and how, infrastructure matters.
Infrastructure Week is a national week of events, education, and advocacy efforts to elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans.
The 2016 theme in 2016—“Infrastructure Matters”—tells the story of what infrastructure means to Americans. 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.
The 2016 Infrastructure Week is coordinated by a steering committee representing America’s business, labor, and policy-making leadership, with more than 100 affiliate organizations from all sectors of America’s economy and civil society.
Infrastructure Week is billed as “the largest, most diverse, non-partisan coalition of organizations dedicated to strengthening America by rebuilding our infrastructure.”
