9 Billion Allocated for Infrastructure in NC

On August 10th, the U.S. Senate passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (H.R. 3684) that would make big investments in roads, bridges, ports, airports, electric grids, water systems and broadband. The $1 trillion infrastructure package includes $550 billion in new federal infrastructure spending. It is anticipated that roughly $9 billion of that could go directly to projects in North Carolina, with the potential for the state to apply for more funding down the road.
