A crash course on the IIJA: Airport, port, and rail sectors

This guide discusses how Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) addresses the immediate need for an updated infrastructure of airports, seaports, and rail sectors to strengthen America’s supply chain resiliency.

According to the 2021 ASCE Report Card, America’s ports supported more than 30 million jobs and approximately 26% of our nation’s GDP. But the report warns that without updating these ports and waterways, the country could face further supply chain and labor issues.

Decades of neglect of the country’s railways, seaports, and airports have left the country in a vulnerable position when it comes to the movement of goods and supply chain issues. According to several surveys, none of the top 25 airports are in the United States, and only four of the ports have made it to the global top 50 ports list. Furthermore, the waterways and ports have billions of dollars in backlogged repairs.

The IIJA will provide $973 billion over the next five years (the fiscal years 2022–2026) to fund a multitude of old and new programs to improve transportation, including railways, seaports, and airports across the country.
