Transportation infrastructure plays a critical part in supporting the
nation's economy and the construction industry plays a key role in
building, maintaining, and improving the systems. Nationally, annual public
investment in highway infrastructure is approximately $160 billion,
transit infrastructure is approximately $30 billion and airport runway
improvement $7 billion. Railroad investment is largely from the private
sector and is approximately $30 billion per year.
Despite these investment levels, transportation infrastructure
investment is woefully inadequate. AGC is a leading advocate
for transportation infrastructure investment at the local, state and Federal level. AGC
chapters nationwide are important proponents of transportation
infrastructure investment at the state and local levels.
