This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. HNTB Corporation has designed many projects across the United States, including the Salt Lake Airport and projects for the Utah Department of Transportation. HNTB’s SLC Office Leader Dominic Spaethling has more.
The one-year anniversary of the federal government’s trillion-dollar ‘Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” is coming up and that legislation is providing billions to states and local governments to upgrade outdated roads, bridges, transit systems, airports and more.
It’s part of the biggest federal infrastructure investment in half-a-century, and a game changer for the people of Utah.
With that funding we are seeing an unprecedented flurry of construction activity gearing up, moving transportation projects that have long been on the back burner into action mode. This means good jobs, greater investments in our infrastructure, and enhanced mobility for every community, even those that have been underserved in the past.
At HNTB, we encourage you make your voice heard when legislators and agencies are deciding which projects to prioritize, and where the future of your community goes. By working together, we can all build a newer, better Utah.
HNTB is a leader in Utah’s transportation industry and is committed to UDOT’s goal of enhancing quality of life through transportation. Learn more at HNTB.com. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
