President Donald Trump is planning a major push in the week ahead to promote a $1 trillion overhaul the nation's roads and bridges. It comes as his agenda has struggled in Congress and been overshadowed by White House controversies.   Trump is expected to speak from the Rose Garden on Monday about reorganizing the nation's air traffic control system. He's then set to travel to Ohio and Kentucky on Wednesday to talk about the need for improving bridges and levees crucial to waterways.

The White House and Congress are headed for a fight over President Trump’s desire to build new tollways on U.S. highways.

The administration is drafting plans to lift current tolling restrictions on interstate highways as part of an effort to upgrade the nation’s infrastructure.

But the contentious idea will be a tough sell in Congress, where lawmakers have generally been reluctant to broach the unpopular subject.

McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. — U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster believes June might essentially be "infrastructure month" in Washington, D.C.

As chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Shuster, R-Pa., plans to negotiate budget proposals and investment guidelines that affect the nation's highways, bridges, rail lines and airports.

Shuster anticipates meeting Monday with President Donald Trump about a Federal Aviation Administration reform bill, and believes the president also might want to travel to see proposed infrastructure projects in the coming weeks.



SAI and the project team completed the project on schedule and within budget. Communication with all stakeholders was a key to the overall success of this project. They did a commendable job on a complex project.
