NAPA lead the 11 member associations of the Highways Materials Group (HMG) in the launch of “Highways Drive America,” a social media campaign designed to raise awareness about the critical need to fund highway infrastructure as a way to stimulate the nation’s return to work and the economy’s recovery in the wake of COVID-19.
The Highways Drive America campaign raises awareness of the need for highway construction and maintenance funding among key legislators and their staff on Capitol Hill. The campaign reminds us that highways are not just how we’ll get back to work and school, but also how we’ll create new jobs across multiple industries. The campaign uses social media to amplify these messages, calling for increased investment in highways, which will increase job opportunities and economic development in every community and industry across the nation.
The crisis has shown us that America can’t function without a safe, reliable, well-maintained surface transportation network. To help kick-start our country’s economic recovery post-COVID, Congress must invest in highway infrastructure now.
