Why the #RebuildSoCal Project? We’ve become frustrated with inactivity. Maybe you have, too? There is a lot of infrastructure work out there that needs to be done and yet politics have gotten in the way. This project came about as a result of our frustration. Nothing will happen if we all just sit here being frustrated with this crisis. We are making efforts to do something about our failing infrastructure and we need your help. Join the movement and lend your voice. We are here to inform and educate. Share your concerns with others and contact your legislators. What’s the problem? We need to trust that tap water, roads and bridges are safe. They are vital to our economic growth. In 2016, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave California a C grade for infrastructure. Streets and highways across the state are some of the worst in the US: They cost motorists $17 billion a year in repairs. Long Beach and Los Angeles roads are the worst in the nation according to 2016 TRIP Report. More than 24 percent of our bridges are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. $44.5 billion is needed over the next 20 years to repair and upgrade antiquated drinking water infrastructure. It is necessary to enhance safety, improve communities and get people back to work on infrastructure jobs. Who are we? The #RebuildSoCal Project works in conjunction with organized labor and construction management. We raise public awareness and educate elected officials about the issues impacting the 12 counties of Southern California. A well-designed and maintained infrastructure is essential to our quality of life. With a primary focus on Southern California projects, we advocate responsible investment in public infrastructure projects to help fix our aging transportation networks, water, sewer and storm drain systems, while building for our future needs and economic growth. A better understanding of the benefits of infrastructure investments helps to employ more than 90,000 union workers in the 2,750 construction firms of SoCal to fix our important infrastructure.
