WASHINGTON, D.C. — This National Infrastructure Week, Building Back Together is celebrating the historic progress made by the Biden-Harris Administration’s investments in America’s critical infrastructure — investing nearly $454 billion to fund over 56,000 projects and awards across the country. 

“This National Infrastructure Week marks a pivotal moment as we celebrate the Biden-Harris Administration’s historic investments to upgrade the United States’ critical infrastructure — all while simultaneously creating thousands of good-paying jobs for workers nationwide. These investments, from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Inflation Reduction Act, and more, showcase how President Biden is delivering for workers and investing in the long-term success of our nation’s economy,” said Blake Goodman, Building Back Together Communications Director. “As we head into the summer, millions of hardworking Americans traveling around the country will see freshly repaired highways, brand new airport terminals, and union crews upgrading our infrastructure as President Biden’s Investing in America agenda gets to work, prioritizing investments in their communities and the creation of the jobs of the future, today.”

Notable Infrastructure projects funded by the Biden-Harris Administration include:

  • The United States’ first-ever high-speed rail project, Brightline West, which will receive up to $3 billion from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and operate between Las Vegas, NV and Rancho Cucamonga, CA.
  • $1.6 billion for the Brent Spence Bridge between Cincinnati, OH and Covington, KY to improve traffic for commuters and supply chain operators along I-71/I-75, a key freight route from Canada to the Southeast.
  • Nearly $29 million for a new terminal at Pittsburgh International Airport in Pennsylvania to improve the passenger security screening checkpoint and other necessary security upgrades.
  • $40 million to upgrade and modernize the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s Concourse D in Georgia to increase passenger capacity, improve accessibility, and boost energy efficiency.
  • The Gila River Indian Community Irrigation Project in Arizona which has received $118 million to bring reclaimed water to the Gila River Indian Community to water its crops through water-efficient canals.
  • $11 billion to repair the 100-year-old Hudson Tunnel between New York and New Jersey following the damages from Superstorm Sandy — creating a safer route into the nation’s largest city for 200,000 commuters daily and thousands of tons of trade cargo.
