Building the Economy: Infrastructure Needs in Washington

As the new administration and Congress consider making major investments in the nation’s infrastructure, AWC partnered with a coalition of Washington state organizations to make the case that Washington is a wise choice. In addition to AWC, the coalition included Association of Washington Business (AWB), the Washington State Association of Counties (WSAC), and the Washington Public Ports Association (WPPA).

Report findings show that Washington state moves more than $70 billion worth of goods through its ports and contributes well over $300 billion annually to the U.S. economy, making the state’s infrastructure vital to the national interest, and yet Washington’s total infrastructure needs are estimated at more than $190 billion. The report uses existing data on needs and illustrative projects from throughout the state to highlight investment opportunities in the critical areas of transportation, water, energy, and communications.
