A map showing the projects funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in Michigan

It’s been over a year since the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law went into effect. Nearly $200 billion have been invested across the country to fund infrastructure for drinking water, public transportation, roads, clean energy, and internet.

The Infrastructure law has funded more than 700 projects in Michigan. The biggest investment – nearly $500 million dollars - has gone toward updating the Soo locks in Sault Ste. Marie.
