Infrastructure Week Kicks Off Today

Thousands of stakeholders in Washington D.C., and across the country are coming together for Infrastructure Week, May 11-15.  

They will highlight the critical importance of investing in and modernizing America’s infrastructure, including its seaports and their land- and water- side connections.

American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) has a number of funding priorities that will help the country build and maintain a 21st century transportation infrastructure, including:

  • the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Infrastructure Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program, which helps improve port infrastructure as well as water, rail and road connections to seaports;
  • the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers coastal navigation program to modernize and maintain U.S. harbors for efficient importing and exporting of goods;
  • the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Port Security Grants program and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Diesel Emission Reductions Act (DERA) environmental grants, both of which keep seaports sustainable and help safeguard local communities.

In the spirit of Infrastructure Week and in the interest of building and sustaining 21st century transportation infrastructure, AAPA is urging Congress to take action now on these critical priorities.
