A bigger airport. A larger I-35. More trains.
There are lofty plans to invest billions of dollars in Austin’s infrastructure in the coming decades, but it will take a monumental hiring spree to make that happen.
It’s estimated that the area will need an additional 10,000 workers each year for the next 17 years to meet the city’s infrastructure goals, according to a study from Austin-based consulting firm Civic Solutions Partnership. This required boost to the region’s workforce will effectively double the number of mobility and infrastructure occupations in the area, which is already growing organically each year by about 38%, according to the study.
