$300 Million Approved for Nine Bridge Projects

The funding through the Transportation Department will rehabilitate small- and mid-sized bridges in eight states.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded $300 million total to nine small- and mid-sized bridge projects in eight states and the District of Columbia. The funding is distributed through the Bridge Investment Program, which was put in place by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This is the most recent distribution of the $40 billion allocated to the rehabilitation of bridges in America.

“When bridges have to close for repairs—or worse, begin to fail—it can cut off access to an entire community, adding hours to commutes, costing money for local businesses, and delaying first responders from getting to an emergency,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The grant awards we’re announcing today are helping communities of all sizes modernize their bridges so that school buses, delivery trucks, ambulances, and commuters can get where they need to go quickly and safely.”   

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Secretary Buttigieg as he heads the Transportation Department.
  • For U.S. transportation officials as they review the projects to fund under the infrastructure legislation.
