One former and nine current Congressmen are scheduled to briefly address the second Rally for Roads: Make Transportation Job #1, March 20 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Groups representing construction materials producers, contractors, road-building equipment interests, and other infrastructure stakeholders are timing the one-hour event to highlight the importance of legislation funding the federal highway program long term—well beyond the most recent temporary funding extension that expires March 31.
