FHWA opens applications for $9 billion in funding for bridges

As 2023 drew to a close, on December 20, the USDOT’s FHWA announced that it had opened applications for $9.7 billion in multi-year funding, which was announced in September, to improve the nation’s bridges through the competitive Bridge Investment Program’s “Planning” and “Bridge Project” categories, which fund bridge planning, repair and replacement projects under $100 million.

President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which established the Bridge Investment Program, invests a total of $40 billion over five years to help ensure that some of the nation’s most important bridges remain safe and operational, meet current and future traveler needs, support local economies, strengthen supply chains, and create good-paying jobs across the country. Already, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has funded over 7,000 bridge projects.
