Texas was recently featured in the Site Selection Magazine as the top state on its Global Groundwork Index. To be selected the publications looks at investments when it comes to roads, bridges, airports, pipelines, utilities, railroads and other massive projects. 

“Our state-of-the-art infrastructure and thriving business climate has kept Texas the top state for economic prosperity,” Governor Greg Abbott said, adding that he is grateful for the workforce efforts to get the work done in the middle of a pandemic. 

“As our economy rebounds from the COVID downturn, we will continue strengthening our infrastructure, creating more jobs, and fostering a more prosperous economic environment for all Texans,” he said.
