$1.14 Billion Announced for U.S. Territories’ Infrastructure

Will fund five years of road and bridge construction and development.

The Department of Transportation announced that $1.14 billion will be made available to rebuild roads and bridges in Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The funding, part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will be distributed over five years, with $219 million available for the 2022 Fiscal Year.

“This funding will help Puerto Rico and the territories improve their highway networks, stimulate economic opportunity and increase highway safety,” Deputy Federal Highway Administrator Stephanie Pollack said. “Today’s funding will help move forward major repairs to highways and bridges and improve transportation systems on these islands.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the secretary of Transportation as infrastructure projects are funded in the U.S. territories.
  • For the administrators of the FHWA as they evaluate building and repair needs of roads and bridges.
