New Roads Ahead: Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding Announced

October 19, 2022

Last week, the Department of Transportation (DOT) announced nearly $60 billion of funding available to states through DOT formula grant programs in fiscal year (FY) 2023.  States may use these funds, authorized under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to support critical infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and environmental and safety improvements.  The FY2023 grant funds represent a substantial increase from FY2021.  In particular, states will see an increase in grant funds for highway and bridge projects:

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law also created three new programs to support carbon reduction, make transportation infrastructure more resilient to future weather events and other natural disasters, and promote use of electronic vehicles. 

Companies interested in working on contracts under these grants should monitor infrastructure funding at the federal and state level to determine where, and how, it creates business opportunities.  We are continuing to closely tracking the implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to help clients navigate the unprecedented levels of infrastructure funding taking place this year, and over the next four years.
