Transportation and Infrastructure

Short Span Steel Bridge Project

An efficient transportation network directly impacts the competitiveness of the domestic steel industry, its customers and suppliers, and American manufacturing as a whole. Modernization of the nation’s infrastructure will facilitate broad economic growth, enhance U.S. global competitiveness and strengthen our national security, while creating significant demand for domestic steel products.

Industry Position

Transportation infrastructure facilitates broad economic growth and directly impacts the competitiveness of the domestic steel industry. Congress should provide for increased, long-term funding for improvements to the nation’s transportation, water, energy and other critical infrastructure. Federal funding should be accompanied by reforms that streamline permitting to speed approval of large projects and should ensure that iron and steel used for the nation’s infrastructure is produced in the United States.
