The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has released state-by-state fact sheets highlighting how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will have an impact across the country.
This follows the U.S. House of Representatives, after months of debate, passing a more than $1 trillion infrastructure bill on November 5, 2021.
Public works construction across the country will be getting a massive infusion of federal spending. Among the beneficiaries will be disabled veteran owned, women owned, and minority owned firms, as well as small businesses and firms owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, including Tribes, and Alaskan Native Corporations.
The DOT plans on improving transportation, repairing roads and bridges, increasing the number of EV chargers, upgrading airports and ports.
Secretary Pete Buttigieg has stated the importance of transportation infrastructure on a daily basis, "to get to work, school, loved ones, and to move goods across our economy". He has expressed his excitement for the new infrastructure law as it will strongly impact people’s lives in every state of the nation.
