Infrastructure Investments Save Money for American Families and Businesses

ASCE economic studies find that when we invest in our infrastructure networks, American families and businesses save money. ASCE’s 2021 “Failure to Act” study found that sub-par infrastructure costs American families $3,300 annually, over 10 years.

The 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and 2022 Inflation Reduction Act were positive steps forward, reducing that household burden to $2,700. In 2026, if Congress continues to act with funding levels from those laws, American families will save $700 more per year, from 2024-43. Those investments also save money for businesses across the economy.
