(WASHINGTON) – American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) President & CEO Pete Ruane issued the following statement:
“When it comes to infrastructure, strategic focus should be the key.
“The biggest return on investment would be found by modernizing America’s Economic Expressway—the Interstate System and its connections to the nation’s major ports, inland waterways, rail hubs, airports and pipelines. Right now it is woefully underperforming, costing every American citizen and business time and money.
“Investing in America’s Economic Expressway would create tens of thousands of jobs in every state, increase our competitiveness, and make long-term improvements to our nation’s economy.”
Since 1902, ARTBA has been the “consensus voice” of the U.S. transportation design and construction industry before Congress, the White House, federal agencies, news media and the general public.
