The Biden administration plans to have states compete for a slice of the proposed $2.25 trillion infrastructure-and-jobs program that’s dedicated to fixing 10 unnamed bridges that are seen as economically important.

The American Jobs Plan, unveiled by President Joe Biden on March 31, pledged to “fix the ten most economically significant bridges in the country in need of reconstruction,” along with the “worst” 10,000 smaller ones in need of repair. None of those were specified by name.
