Infrastructure Week 2017

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

It’s #TimeToBuild

Infrastructure Week is a national week of education and advocacy that brings together American businesses, workers, elected leaders, and everyday citizens around one message: It’s #TimeToBuild. From May 15-19, leaders and citizens around America will highlight state of our nation’s infrastructure – roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, the energy grid, and more – and encourage policymakers to invest in the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous, and safe.

Our bipartisan Steering Committee and over 150 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 America that it is Time to Build.

Why Join Us?

America’s infrastructure is crumbling, inefficient, and inadequately designed to meet 21st century needs. Yet it is also one of the rare issues on which both political parties, the business and labor communities, and leaders from the White House to State Houses to City Halls, find common ground. In the private sector, and at the state and local levels, innovators from the public and private sectors are investing in new projects, policies, and technologies to put America back in the fast lane.

About the organization

Infrastructure Week was founded and is led by its Steering Committee – a bipartisan team 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 150 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, and energy projects that keep America competitive, prosperous, and safe.

What We Do

During Infrastructure Week, organizations and individuals around America  – from trade associations and local 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 funding and finance.

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.
