DOT Invests $2.1 Billion in Critical Bridge Projects

Funding includes the revitalization of California’s Golden Gate Bridge.

The Department of Transportation has announced the first distribution of funds from the Large Bridge Project Grant program. Created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, this first round of funding will go toward four large-scale bridge-building and restoration projects. The Brent Spence Bridge that spans the river between Ohio and Kentucky, California’s Golden Gate Bridge, the Gold Star Memorial Bridge in Connecticut, and the four raised bridges over Chicago, Illinois’ Calumet River will receive $2.1 billion altogether for the fiscal year 2023.

“Safe, modern bridges ensure that first responders can get to calls more quickly, shipments reach businesses on time, and drivers can get to where they need to go,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The Biden-Harris Administration is proud to award this historic funding to modernize large bridges that are not only pillars of our economy, but also iconic symbols of their states’ past and future.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Transportation Department officials as they review and determine which infrastructure projects to support.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg to be discerning as he heads the department.
  • For the recipients of taxpayer dollars use them wisely and effectively.
