Roads, railroads, airports, and deep-water ports are essential building blocks of the Galveston County economy.

Infrastructure enables trade, powers businesses, connects workers to their jobs, creates opportunities, and protects the nation from an increasingly unpredictable natural environment.

From private investment in telecommunication systems, broadband networks, freight railroads, energy projects and pipelines, to publicly spending on transportation, water, buildings and parks, infrastructure is the backbone of a healthy economy.

Electricity, natural gas, water and drainage are all commodities and services that businesses need to function. Thankfully they are in abundant supply in Galveston County.
