On November 16, 2021, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was signed into law and promises to increase construction spending across the industry. This massive influx of opportunity is happening in the middle of a drawn-out labor shortage that makes current work difficult to complete.
To meet the increased demands, every construction employee will need to be using technology to be more efficient in the way that machines have made manufacturing more efficient. Thousands of companies have turned to HCSS software to increase the productivity of their workforce, and we expect that to increase as construction businesses look to claim their piece of the new funding.
This new bill includes $450 billion for highway and public transportation investments and new, 5-year reauthorization of the federal surface transportation programs. The IIJA will deliver generational transportation investments, with 90% of the resources for roads and bridges distributed by formula directly to the states.
