Biden Pledges Billions for Bridges
Updated on

President Joe Biden announced more than $5 billion will be distributed to repair or replace bridges across the U.S. for the coming year, part of infrastructure legislation passed by Congress in November.

Biden said it’s the largest investment in bridges since the creation of the interstate highway system, a project that was kicked off with legislation signed in 1956.
