SALEM, Ore. — President Joe Biden signed the $1 trillion infrastructure bill into law Monday on the White House lawn, hailing it as an example of what bipartisanship can achieve.
What this means to Oregon is more jobs and at least 400 bridges can be repaired. Oregon Governor Kate Brown was in Washington D.C. for the signing of the bill.
$1.2 billion is coming to Oregon over the next 5 years. Highway and bridge work, improving safety and seismic integrity, and improvements to mass transit will be part of our package. There will also be more electric vehicle charging stations. Additional walking and bike paths will be created to reduce carbon emissions.
