The passage of H.R.3684 – the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act – ensures daily commutes across metropolitan cities and small towns will be improved. The bill reauthorizes surface transportation programs for five years and invests $110 billion in additional funding. The bill also guarantees $89.9 billion for public transit over the next five years between reauthorizations and new funding. Highways and bridges will be repaired, intersections redesigned, designated bus lanes created, bicycle lanes protected, and commuter rail services expanded.
Join us as our expert panel discusses the fundamentals of upcoming infrastructure projects and how they will affect our daily lives and commutes.Virtual Meeting
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will improve the way Americans travel, as well as how goods and materials are transported. With the current economic state occurring from a multitude of issues, improving our transportation infrastructure is more important than ever.

Additionally, $5 billion is allocated for electric school buses and cleaner alternatives.
