One of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act’s (IIJA) key purposes is to fund highway repair across the United States.
The IIJA, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) will help build bridges, roads, rails, improve access to clean drinking water, support environmental justice, and help launch transformational infrastructure projects across the nation.
Currently, twenty percent of highways and roads in the United States are considered to be in poor condition. To address this issue, hundreds of millions in IIJA funding will be devoted to repairing the these structures.
This investment towards the improvement of both highways and bridges is the single largest since the interstate highway system was built. Below, we’ve highlighted states receiving greater than $1 billion in funding for highway-related infrastructure projects.
The fourteen states receiving more than $1 billion in funding for highway infrastructure projects are: Texas, California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, and Missouri. We expect to see major highway projects across the United States take flight as this funding becomes available.
