A new report released by USDOT seeks to update the public on key initiatives the agency has undertaken to improve safety, efficiency, and more.
On the heels of the two-year anniversary of the passing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) released a report last week highlighting the progress it has made. The report updates the public on several key efforts including improving road safety, advancing innovation, and implementing historic investments in rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure.
“We are delivering for the American people with the resources now available because President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law reversed decades of underinvestment in our transportation systems,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
Several key accomplishments include the publication of the National Roadway Safety Strategy, funding the repair of 7,800 bridges and 135,000 miles of roads, and the launch of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Infrastructure (ARPA-I). Moreover, over $450 million has been made available to higher education institutions to develop new transportation technologies.
