Under the leadership of NACo President Riki Hokama (Councilmember, Maui County, Hawaii), NACo is strengthening the capacity of county leaders to deliver transportation and infrastructure services to their communities. The Transportation and Infrastructure Initiative will address the county role in promoting investments that support economic competitiveness, improve passenger travel, foster creative partnerships, ensure safety, and enhance community quality of life. This initiative will focus on the fundamentals of today's county transportation and infrastructure needs as well as explore the future of America's infrastructure advancements, including broadband expansion and technology innovations.
Within the Transportation and Infrastructure Initiative, NACo will convene public- and private-sector stakeholders, produce special reports, develop webinars and podcasts, facilitate peer learning and host symposiums, workshops and roundtable events.
America’s counties play an essential role in developing transportation and infrastructure networks. This report describes how six counties in the U.S. are investing in transportation and infrastructure projects to drive economic growth.
