Two years ago today, President Joe Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, more commonly known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), into law.

The legislation allocated $1.2 trillion in funding over the next decade, including $550 billion in new spending. This funding went toward infrastructure — like rebuilding the United States’ roads, public transit, airports, bridges and rail — as well as internet access, clean water, electric grid renewal and other projects aimed at confronting the climate crisis.

As of Oct. 31, 2023, the White House has announced $3.2 billion in BIL funding for Utah for more than 200 projects. This money includes $2.1 billion for transportation, $577 million for water projects and $317 million for high-speed internet access.
