The County Role in Infrastructure

Counties are leaders in the nation’s infrastructure system. Transportation and infrastructure are core public sector responsibilities that impact everything from our daily commutes to shipping goods around the globe. From building and maintaining roads and bridges to providing efficient transit options, counties are a driving force connecting communities and strengthening our economy. Counties also play a major role in other essential community infrastructure, such as schools, hospitals, jails, courthouses, parks, broadband deployment, and water purification and sewage systems.
