The presidential election has finally passed, and Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States.

Trump delivered a victory speech in New York City during the wee hours of the morning Nov. 9, imparting a number of messages on Americans – including his desire to enhance the nation’s crumbling infrastructure.

“We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals,” Trump says. “We’re going to rebuild our infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none. And we will put millions of our people to work as we rebuild it.”

There was no specific mention during the victory speech of a Trump Wall, which, according to one report, would drive considerable demand for aggregate along the southern U.S. border. More details about Trump’s infrastructure-related plans are bound to come in the weeks ahead.
