A Monumental Step Forward for Infrastructure

On Monday, November 15, 2021, President Biden signed into law the $1.2 trillion bi-partisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act! This law invests in the rebuilding of our transit and rail systems, roads and bridges, water infrastructure, resilience, broadband, and more. Swift implementation will strengthen supply chains by making improvements to our ports, airports, rail and roads, creating good-paying jobs and growing the economy sustainably and equitably while improving safety. The law includes $284 billion dedicated towards transportation:

  • Roads and Bridges: $110 billion
  • Rail: $66 billion
  • Transit: $39 billion
  • Aviation: $25 billion
  • Ports and Waterways: $17 billion
