ACPA played a lead role in co-developing the Highways Materials Group’s “Highways Drive America” campaign.  The campaign is aimed at informing and influencing Congress to pass a robust highway bill, which will not only accelerate economic recovery and provide sustainable economic growth. The FHWA says for every billion dollars invested in infrastructure, there are 13,000 jobs created.

The campaign is focused on federal legislators, as well as other stakeholders to urge them to voice support of bringing infrastructure investment to the forefront. The campaign consists of a video (featuring ACPA projects), an infographic, and six video posts designed for social media.  The posting began last Thursday and will run for the next couple of weeks. Follow us on Twitter (@paveconcrete) or LinkedIn to see the whole campaign package.
