Celebrating Women’s History Month: Women in Construction
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will improve the way Americans travel, as well as how goods and materials are transported. With the current economic state occurring from a multitude of issues, improving our transportation infrastructure is more important than ever.
IIJA has earmarked $25 billion for airports, $66 billion for railways, and $100 billion in competitive grants for projects focused on moving freight. These grants will help unblock delivery channels and clear bottlenecked supply chains. Electric vehicle charging infrastructure will also be addressed with $7.5 billion in funding. Additionally, $5 billion is allocated for electric school buses and cleaner alternatives.
Join our expert panel as we discuss how the funds from IIJA will address the current and future infrastructure needs for Americans, their goods, and the ability to travel.
