Infrastructure Week 2016

The NAM is proud to support Infrastructure Week 2016, a national week of advocacy efforts elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans.

The 2016 theme, 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.
