The road building industry is poised for growth in the near future, thanks in part to the $1.2-trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) which was passed late last year.

Approximately $126 billion of that money will go to the Department of Transportation to use on roadways over the next five years, an increase of about 30% from past years.
