The U.S. Congress recently passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and it was
signed into law by President Biden on November 15, 2021. What does the IIJA mean for Maine?
We can expect to see over the five-year plan a total of $2.4 billion dollars. The 2.4 billion is
earmarked for highway, bridges, broadband, drinking water, and wastewater related infrastructure
projects. What is the breakdown of the $2.4 billion within these categories? It is estimated that
$1.3 billion be for Federal Highway, $74 million for airports, $100 million for broadband, $225
million for bridges, $234 million for transportation and $390 million for drinking water and
wastewater.
