Trucking Companies are looking forward to the proposed infrastructure pledge, as upgrades to roads and bridges will surely lift the US Economy. Already effectively removing roadblocks that prevent the rebuilding process. According to the American Trucking Association, bumpy roads add $49.6 billion in added costs to the trucking industry. By 2040, deficient roads will have caused over $1 trillion in damages, diminishing the overall economy by $3 trillion.
