As leaders and professionals, we know that investing in infrastructure pays off in spades for both the short and long term. And President Biden’s $1.2T infrastructure law is already making waves across the country.
This fascinating article from Yahoo Finance outlines exactly how each US state is benefiting from the law, and the results are impressive. From improved highways and bridges to expanded broadband access and updated ports, it’s clear that this law is driving serious improvements that will benefit businesses and communities alike.
As we reflect on this exciting progress, it’s worth considering how we can contribute to this larger momentum towards investing in our infrastructure. Whether it’s supporting businesses who are leading the way in these projects, pushing for further investment and innovation, or simply recognizing the significance of these efforts, we all have a role to play.
At the end of the day, strategic investments in infrastructure are essential to the safety, reliability, and longevity of our critical infrastructure. These investments have been shown to have real, immediate economic benefits. A recent report from APWA shows that “every $1 invested in transportation returns $5 in economic benefits, and every $1 billion supports and creates about 50,000 jobs.”
The pivotal role of technology cannot be overstated when it comes to optimizing efficiency, driving cost reductions, and fostering seamless collaboration among stakeholders.
