As infrastructure continues to play a key role in economic growth, the aviation industry and other sectors remain hopeful for a productive and prosperous 2021 despite the heavy impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Garver Aviation Director Mike Griffin, PE, recently shared his insights into infrastructure spending in 2021 with Engineering News-Record Texas & Louisiana. In the article, Griffin addressed possible stimulus packages in the new year and their impacts on Garver clients, while expressing that infrastructure spending will help many of the firm’s clients – across a variety of industries – get ahead after the pandemic.

Griffin told the publication that most of Garver's clients in sectors including aviation, water and transportation have a head start in infrastructure spending that can be fast-tracked after COVID-19.

“Airport facility managers that can leverage new funding from Washington with lower interest rates on bond issues, for example, will be very well prepared when and if Congress passes a comprehensive infrastructure package,” Griffin said.

While 2021 will continue to feel the effects of the pandemic, Griffin is confident as the aviation industry moves into the next year.

Many southern states, namely Louisiana and Texas, continue to pursue infrastructure improvements, and Griffin’s team of aviation experts is gearing up for a promising 2021, with projects underway at Dallas Love Field; Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas; Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport; and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.
