In a release from the Transportation Trades Department (TTD) of which TCU is a member, the need for investment into the infrastructure will not only improve transportation systems but also put more Americans back to work.

Across all modes of transportation and across the entire nation, we’ve underinvested to such an extent that we’re stifling growth and the system’s capacity. And as demonstrated by a new report from the Duke Center for Globalization, Governance & Competitiveness and the Alliance for American Manufacturing, in the process we’re undeniably injuring the American economy.
