The Benefits of Transportation
THE SOLUTIONS STATE DOTS BRING TO PEOPLE AND THEIR COMMUNITIES
From the very beginning of America’s founding, upgrading and expanding transportation infrastructure represented a key national policy goal. Starting with rivers, harbors, and post roads, then later with the construction of canals, the transcontinental railroad, and the Interstate Highway System, transportation infrastructure proved a critical lynchpin for increasing economic growth, resulting in a steadily improving quality of life for the people who live here.
These stories show how ongoing investment in the nation’s transportation network continues delivering those benefits in modern times, too – generating more business for companies and economic well-being for Americans.
