Following the general election, the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) compiled a report that shows resounding support for infrastructure projects in more than a dozen states. According to the report the approved measures “will support $12.7 billion in new transportation investment revenue and $1.3 billion in continued funding through tax extensions, renewals or protections.” We’re pleased to see that 96 percent of the measures passed will directly fund highway, street and bridge projects. Additionally, we are excited about the road construction prospects in two of our rapidly growing markets: Ohio and Texas. Both states approved dozens of transportation investment measures at the local level.
“Agencies are going to be seeking environmentally-friendly products, and we want them to think of Blacklidge because we have the products that meet their specifications,” responded Brit Blacklidge, CEO of Blacklidge.
“We are ahead of the curve since we have been developing innovative, sustainable solutions for a long time now,” added Dr. John “JFK” Moore, COO of Blacklidge.
Blacklidge is looking forward to the opportunity to support these initiatives (and more) with sustainable, high-performance, asphalt-based products that contribute to longer-lasting roads — ensuring a better investment for taxpayers.
