May 12-16 is National Infrastructure Week

Infrastructure Week 2014 will be led by the U.S. Council on Competitiveness, the Value of Water Coalition, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, and others.  These groups bring unique and important perspectives to the ongoing dialogue about the deteriorating condition of our nation’s infrastructure.
During the week of May 12-16, Infrastructure Week 2014 will explore emerging solutions, innovative approaches, and best practices being developed nationwide to modernize aging infrastructure.  Daily signature events organized by steering committee members will focus on major infrastructure challenges, including freight and goods movement, passenger transportation, and drinking water and wastewater treatment.  The events will focus on the consequences of inaction and the importance of interconnected infrastructure that provides a safe, secure, and competitive climate for business operations nationwide.
The steering committee is also calling for stakeholder groups to hold events during the week to build public awareness and demonstrate the many challenges, and opportunities, inherent in rebuild America’s infrastructure.  Together, through Infrastructure Week 2014, organizations will collectively demonstrate that maintaining the status quo on infrastructure is not acceptable and underscore ways to move forward.
