WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CG/LA Infrastructure, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure project identification, development and advisory, announced today the release of the Top 100 North American Strategic Infrastructure Projects for 2012. The total estimated value of the projects identified is over US $470 billion, across 12 infrastructure categories. 

The Top 100 List is being released prior to the 4th Annual North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum, held in Denver, CO from October 15-17, 2012. The leaders of those projects will be hosted at the Leadership Forum. "Our overall goal is to double the level of infrastructure investment in North America – infrastructure drives growth and competitiveness, and we see tremendous success stories, and tremendous opportunities, at the state and local level," according to Norman Anderson, CEO of CG/LA Infrastructure. 

The Forum focuses on projects that will increase long-term business opportunities and competitiveness, and short-term economic success, across the US and throughout the North American economic unit.  Highlighted sectors and project values are the following: Airports ($8.3 B), Electricity ($42.8 B), Higher Speed Rail ($68 B), Mining & Related Infrastructure ($80 B), Oil & Gas ($73.5 B), Ports & Logistics ($11.2 B), Renewables ($24.7 B), Social Infrastructure ($600 M), Surface Transport, including highways and bridges ($217 B), UMT ($17.5 B), Water/wastewater ($19.5 B), and Strategic ($10 B).  "The natural gas revolution is a key project driver, and so is the need to respond to a rapidly globalizing economy," said Anderson.

The theme of this year's Forum is "Driving Vision, Velocity and Productivity."  Aging infrastructure in the US is a problem, but so is the wrong infrastructure – infrastructure designed for a world that no longer exists. The projects presented in the Top 100 list, and hosted at the Forum, are selected based on their long-term value in creating increased opportunities, and dramatic improvements in competitiveness.
