President Biden said the bipartisan infrastructure package he signed into law last year is “already making tangible differences.”
"Now just 74 days after signing that law, we're already making tangible differences for highways, ports, high speed internet, clean air, clean water," Biden said in a speech in Pittsburgh. "That includes $1.6 billion over the next five years for Pennsylvania to repair its bridges."
Biden spoke about revamping roads, bridges and airports just hours after after a snow-covered bridge collapsed that left several people injured.
"More than 3,300 bridges across Pennsylvania and over 7,500 miles of highway in poor condition," Biden said. "It also means jobs, replacing led water pipes so families in ten million homes and in 400,000 schools and child care centers can drink clean water, not lead based. Jobs providing the labor and infrastructure making high speed internet affordable and available everywhere in America. Cities, suburban and rural areas so that nobody is left behind."
