Building Strong Infrastructure for a Growing Texas
1 Sep 2023
From public roads to transmission lines, from water pipelines to broadband access, the elements of Texas’ infrastructure are the bones that support its sturdy economy; its pro-business bona fides rely on strong infrastructure to support 30 million (and growing) Texans where they live, work and play. Given the high stakes, state leaders and lawmakers have embraced the challenge of building and maintaining a strong infrastructure.
Keeping up with the state’s population growth is a tall order: Six of the fastest-growing cities in the nation last year were in Texas, and the U.S. Census Bureau says the state has grown by more than 9 million people since 2000, doubling the population of 11 counties.
