After the bridge collapsed, some people immediately gave up hope it would be fixed. But we’re living in an infrastructure decade, with a president who’s actually willing to invest in these projects, and that changes everything.
The members of the Philadelphia Building Trades union worked literally 24/7–day and night, in the sun and in the rain, and on Father’s Day. When Pennsylvania needed them, they showed up to work, they delivered and got it done ahead of schedule.
It’s amazing work. But don’t just take it from us.
“We demolished a roadway. We rebuilt I-95 in just 12 days. Through that process we showed the nation what Philadelphia and Pennsylvania are all about.”
—Governor Josh Shapiro
“The building trades folks are the real heroes here — they constructed this in a skillful and speedy way, and I am eternally grateful for their dedication.”
—PA Secretary of Transportation Michael Carroll
