WASHINGTON, DC –  Join the National League of Cities (NLC) in celebrating the 12th Annual  Infrastructure Week happening May 13-17. This year’s activities will highlight the successful projects underway by local governments across the country as a result of federal funding through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. NLC’s Rebuilding America tool showcases hundreds of federally funded infrastructure projects from cities, towns and villages.

Infrastructure Week highlights the importance of federal investments like the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in roads, rails, pipes, ports and other infrastructure that strengthen the quality of life in our nation and support our economic strength. During the week, organizations from around the country, including NLC, are coming together to host and coordinate various events to demonstrate the continued importance of infrastructure.
