Press Release

Washington D.C. — Today, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (AL-07) announced the first round of investments in repairing Alabama’s bridges under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Law she helped pass. Sewell helped deliver $45 million to fix bridges across Alabama in Fiscal Year 2022, part of a total $225 million investment over the next five years. 

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is already delivering results for the State of Alabama!” said Rep. Sewell. “Repairing our bridges will allow commerce to move more efficiently, create jobs, and make our communities safer and better connected.”  

The investment announced today is designed to help Alabama repair local bridges that are critical for getting to school and work, moving commerce, and connecting communities. The Infrastructure Law also includes a separate program designed to support larger bridges through a competitive grant program. Details on that program will be announced at a later date.
