Transportation and Infrastructure

Our infrastructure is outdated and already beginning to fail our commuters, businesses and families. That is why, as a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure committee, Congressman Allred supports increased investment and innovative programs to rebuild our highways, airports, bridges, and railroads. Investment in our country’s infrastructure is vital to a prosperous economy, and these projects will create millions of jobs, invigorating local economies, boosting middle-class families, and improving quality of life for Americans everywhere.
