Infrastructure Week

One Week. One call to action. Many voices, united.

Infrastructure Week, a non-profit organization, convenes a national week of education and advocacy that brings together American businesses, workers, elected leaders, and everyday citizens around one message in 2018: Americans are waiting. The future won’t. It’s #TimeToBuild.  Each year during IWeek, leaders and citizens around America highlight the state of our nation’s infrastructure – roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, the energy grid, telecoms, and more – and the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous, and safe.

Our bipartisan Steering Committee and nearly 400 affiliates host events, drive media attention, and educate stakeholders and policymakers on the critical importance of infrastructure to America’s economic competitiveness, security, job creation, and in the daily lives of every American. As a business, union, non-profit, government, or an individual who depends on infrastructure, you have an important story to tell. Find a way to participate and tell your fellow citizens and policymakers: We’re tired of waiting. It’s Time to Build.

About the organization

Infrastructure Week is a 501c4 non-profit working to educate America’s public about the importance of infrastructure to the nation’s economy, workers, and communities. Since 2013, Infrastructure Week has been led by its Steering Committee – a bipartisan coalition that includes leading business groups, labor unions, and think tanks working to improve America’s infrastructure.

Infrastructure Week takes great pride in the diversity of our coalition. Together, our Steering Committee and more than 300 Affiliates at the national, state, and local levels, represent stakeholders from manufacturers and retailers to mayors and senior citizens. Our voices – from every facet of America’s economy, workforce, and communities – are united to make the case for investing in the transportation, water, energy, and communications systems that keep America competitive, prosperous, and safe.

What We Do

During Infrastructure Week, organizations and individuals around America  – from local businesses, trade associations and chambers of commerce to mayors and individual citizens – host events, tour new and innovative projects, talk about infrastructure in national, local and social media, and show policymakers at all levels of government the breadth and diversity of support for long-term, sustainable infrastructure investment.

Our staff support countless national and local groups, facilitate partnerships, and help organize events to highlight infrastructure challenges and the innovators working to overcome them. We encourage you to participate in Infrastructure Week and tell your infrastructure story. Plan an event. Drive media attention. Reach out to your elected leaders.
