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 2019, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave California a C- grade, marking a drop from the C grade received previously in 2012.

Not one of CA’s infrastructure categories was robust enough to earn an A (Exceptional, Fit for the Future) or even a B (Good, Adequate for Now). And several infrastructure sections scored a low D grade, which designates those systems as “Poor and At Risk.”

  • Streets and highways across the state cost motorists $17 billion a year in repairs.
  • Long Beach and Los Angeles roads are some of the worst in the nation according to 2018 TRIP Report.
  • According to The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), the most traveled structurally deficient bridges in the country are on parts of Route 101, Interstate 405 and Interstate 5 in California, where daily crossings are as high as 289,000 per day.
  • $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.
