The United States has introduced a infrastructure bill and it is going to put billions of dollars into various different government agencies over the next 5 years. The most amount of money is going to roads and bridges and is going to be 110 billion dollars. There are various other things that are going to get funded including electric vehicles, public transit and airports. The fund is going to allow many electric school buses to be delivered nation wide to help students get to and from school.
- The bill is going to add 110 billion dollars of funds for roads and bridges and 73 billion for the electric grid.
- Modes of transportation besides ones that run on the street will benefit as passenger and freight rails will get money too.
- There is a 5 billion dollar program that is being established to help reduce crashes and fatalities for cyclists.
“Included in the new funding is $40 billion for bridge repair, replacement and rehabilitation – the single largest dedicated bridge investment since the construction of the interstate highway system.”
