Washington – Today, Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-04) celebrated the second anniversary of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and highlighted projects made possible by this generational investment. The funding included in the BIL is investing in our communities, modernizing our infrastructure, and creating good-paying jobs in California.
“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s once-in-a-generation investment in America is making California, safer, cleaner, and greener,” said Thompson. “I’ve worked hard to secure historic levels of funding for our district through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. These significant investments include $11.4 million for Lake County wildfire risk reduction, $6.4 million for the Napa Valley Transportation Authority, $1.6 million to replace the Chase Street Bridge over Nathanson Creek in Sonoma, $2 million to improve traffic signals along Alamo Drive in Vacaville, and $4.1 million to widen shoulders and add a pedestrian and bike path to County Road 98 in Yolo County. These funds are just the beginning, and more is on the way.
“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has also allocated approximately $1 billion to California to help us bolster our resilience to wildfires and other climate-related disasters. I will continue to ensure our district receives additional funding from this historic law to continue our work to improve quality of life, create good-paying jobs, and grow our economy.”
The BIL is creating good paying jobs and spurring economic growth, while delivering funds to key projects in California’s Fourth District.
To date, $32.7 billion in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding has been announced and is headed to California with over 1,100 specific projects identified for funding. Since the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law passed, approximately $24.2 billion has been announced for transportation – to invest in roads, bridges, public transit, ports and airports – and roughly $2 billion has been announced for clean water and water infrastructure. California received $1.9 billion to connect everyone in the state to reliable high-speed internet and, as of today, more than 2,657,000 California households are already saving on their monthly internet bill due to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
