President Biden, U.S. Department of Transportation Open Applications for First Round of Funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s New Competitive Bridge Investment Program
Reflecting a commitment to rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration today opened a call for applications through a Notice of Funding Opportunity for the competitive Bridge Investment Program established by the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which includes the single largest dedicated investment in bridges since the construction of the Interstate highway system.
The program will provide $12.5 billion over five years, with nearly $2.4 billion available in FY22 to help plan, replace, rehabilitate, protect, and preserve some of the nation’s largest bridges. This competitive grant program comes on top of more than $27 billion in formula bridge funding the U.S. Department of Transportation announced earlier this year. This investment will help ensure that some of the nation’s most important bridges remain operational, support local economies, strengthen our supply chains, improve safety, and create good-paying jobs across the country.
