One Year Later, the Trone-backed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Continues to Deliver for Marylanders

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, on the first anniversary of the landmark Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Congressman David Trone highlighted the historic federal investments that are already creating good-paying jobs across the state, strengthening our supply chains and economy, and building a better tomorrow for Marylanders.

Decades of underinvestment have left Maryland’s infrastructure in disrepair – resulting in dangerous roads and highways, broken bridges, and unsafe water sources. The American Society of Civil Engineers gave Maryland’s infrastructure an overall grade of “C” — including a “B” for its bridges, a “D+” for its transit, and a “C” for its drinking water.

Last November, Congressman Trone took action to fix these long-standing issues by voting for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Supported by both Democrats and Republicans, the Law meets the urgent needs of Marylanders and sets our communities up for success in the years to come. Over the next decade, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will provide federal funds for a range of projects in Maryland, including:

  • $4.7 billion over five years to repair highways and bridges;
  • More than $1.8 billion over five years to improve public transportation;
  • At least $100 million to strengthen access to affordable, high-speed internet; and,
  • $844 million over five years to improve water infrastructure across the state and ensure that clean, safe drinking water is a right in all communities.

One year later, over $2.6 billion in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding has been delivered to our state, spurring new construction on long-awaited projects and job growth. This includes: 

  • $1.8 billion for roads, bridges, roadway safety, and major projects;
  • $347 million to improve public transportation options;
  • $154 million for infrastructure resilience;
  • $144 million to provide clean and safe water and improve water infrastructure;
  • $57 million for clean energy and energy efficiency;
  • $41.8 million for clean transit buses and improved bus service through the Department of Transportation;
  • $31 million for airport modernization and operations;
  • $22.7 million to build out a statewide network of electric vehicle chargers; and,
  • $9.4 million through the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean School Bus Program.

Last month, Congressman Trone also announced key federal investments in highway infrastructure for his district, including connecting U.S. 219 North to Pennsylvania through his “Finish the ADHS Act.” The measure was included and passed through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

“Putting people over politics, Congress delivered a once-in-a-generation investment to create millions of good-paying jobs and help us repair, rebuild, and revitalize our communities,” said Congressman Trone. “The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is already putting shovels in the dirt and Marylanders to work as we fix our roads, connect homes and businesses to the internet, and lower energy costs for hardworking folks. I remain committed to working with our local leaders to ensure these investments reach our communities as quickly as possible.”

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Appropriations, Veterans’ Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees in the 117th Congress. In Congress, Trone is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the mental health and addiction crises, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
