Thank you for your interest in the TriState Infrastructure Council. We will collectively attract investment in infrastructure to enable economic growth in the Ohio River Valley.
Spurred by globally-significant oil and gas development in the Appalachian basin, petrochemical, plastics, and related manufacturing industries are widely expected to expand in the Ohio-Pennsylvania-West Virginia region in the coming decade. Industrial growth requires a sound transportation and infrastructure network within the region of operations as well as among suppliers and customers. This network includes pipelines, locks and dams, railways, roads and bridges, water and sewer, building sites, storage and loading/unloading facilities, broadband, and air service, among others. And whereas all of these assets are present in the broader region, gaps will need to be filled and assets upgraded if growth opportunities are to be fully realized. The TriState Infrastructure Council was founded to serve a broad-based business community across geographic boundaries during the critical next few years by attracting and deploying investments in infrastructure projects while serving as an information clearinghouse.
