WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has announced that $749.9 million will go to 12 formula programs to support critical West Virginia infrastructure. This includes roads, bridges and tunnels, carbon emission reduction and safety improvements.

The funds, via West Virginia in Fiscal Year 2023 apportionments using funds from the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will allow flexibility in the rebuilding of West Virginia’s roads and bridges.

“America’s roads and bridges are the vital arteries of our transportation system, connecting people and goods across the country,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “Because of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, today we are sending historic levels of funding to every state to help modernize the roads and bridges Americans rely on every day.”

Fund allocations:

National Highway Performance Program$329,005,799
Surface Transportation Block Grant$160,056,875
Highway Safety Improvement Program$35,195,423

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was created to help address tens of thousands of bridges in need of repair or replacement.

“These historic investments in American infrastructure give States the flexibility they need to determine how to allocate funds in order to replace deficient bridges, improve safety for all road users, and reduce carbon emissions by improving transportation infrastructure for communities throughout each state,” said acting federal highway administrator Stephanie Pollack. “This funding we are announcing today will allow States to continue the important work of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that will make our infrastructure safer and more efficient for the tens of millions of American families that count on it to get to school, work, and critical medical care every day.”
