How 2 Years of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Has Changed the North Coast: A Message from Rep. Huffman
In the two years since President Joe Biden signed the historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we’ve invested in more than 40,000 projects across the country to build a better America – from repairing roads, bridges, and highways to creating safer, greener, and more accessible transportation systems.
Rep. Huffman celebrates funding for the SMART extension of passenger rail.
I’ve been focused on making sure the North Coast gets its fair share of these transformative federal dollars. And I’m happy to say our district has received investments for projects up and down the coast and they are already making a difference. Here is a snapshot of just a few of the projects for which I’m proud to have helped secure funding:
- $8.5 Million for Humboldt Bay Port Development
- $32 Million for SMART Extension of Passenger Rail to Healdsburg and Purchase of Low Emission Freight Locomotives
- $400 Million for the Seismic Retrofit of the Golden Gate Bridge
- $41.4 Million to Help Put Better, Cleaner Buses on The Roads in Marin and Santa Rosa
- $65.9 Million for Trinity River Fish Hatchery Upgrades
- $13.5 Million for Round Valley Indian Tribe’s Broadband Infrastructure Deployment
In addition to creating millions of well-paying jobs and strengthening the economy, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is:
- Increasing access to clean drinking water;
- Building safer sidewalks and bike lines;
- Improving freight and passenger rail, airports, and ports;
- Upgrading our wastewater and stormwater infrastructure;
- Expanding access to high-speed internet;
- Creating a nationwide electric vehicle charging network;
- Advancing our climate goals and reducing carbon emissions; and
- Delivering cheaper and cleaner energy to households and businesses.
