U.S. Department of Transportation announces $4.9B in infrastructure project funding

On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced more than $4.9 billion in funding for 37 infrastructure projects.

The funding, will come from the National Infrastructure Project Assistance (Mega) grant program and the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant program, both part of Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

“With this announcement, we are advancing projects so large, complex, and ambitious that they could not get funded under the infrastructure programs that existed prior to the Biden administration,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. “Our INFRA and Mega programs are helping build the cathedrals of American infrastructure: truly transformative projects that will change entire regions and our entire country for the better.”
