Virginians for Jobs & the Economy

Connecting the Economy

Bridges, Highways, Roads

Roads, Highways, and Bridges are an important lifeline for economic prosperity because they are the arteries that connect every aspect of American life. Not only are jobs directly created by the initial construction project and maintenance but all jobs in the area rely on well-maintained roads. Good roads are also important to attracting new businesses and jobs to communities. The economy cannot function unless we invest in our road system.
