Historic Investments in Infrastructure

Historic Investments in Infrastructure

Connecticut has been in dire need of infrastructure investment for decades. I helped to deliver the funds needed to bring Connecticut infrastructure into the 21st century through my work on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan and funds secured for numerous Community Funded Projects.

Through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan, Connecticut received:

  • $3.5 billion for federal highway programs

  • $561 million for bridge replacement

  • $1.3 billion for public transportation

  • $53 million for electric vehicle chargers and infrastructure

  • $100 million to improve broadband coverage

  • $445 million for water infrastructure

  • $62 million for airports

This is the largest investment in our nation’s infrastructure in decades. These critical funds will be used over the next 5 years to bring Connecticut’s infrastructure into the 21st century. The plan invests $24 billion in Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, which will improve the ability of Connecticut residents to access the rest of the northeast quickly and comfortably.

I  also fought to bring money directly to projects championed by community members and secured $4.7 billion for projects related to transportation and infrastructure, including:

  • Southbury Pedestrian Safety Improvements: $444,946

  • Avon Sidewalk Replacement: $424,000

  • Cornwall Wastewater Treatment Facility Construction: $3 Million

  • Newtown Wastewater and environmental upgrades at the Fairfield Hills Campus: $480,000

  • New Britain Remediation and Demolition at the Former Thomas Aquinas High School Building: $350,000
