White House indicates NJ will get $12B if Congress approves infrastructure bill

Funding for roads, transportation infrastructure as well as for EV charging stations and broadband internet

According to the White House, New Jersey would get $12 billion over the next five years if Congress approves a $1 trillion infrastructure bill. That includes $7.9 billion for highway improvements and bridge repair and replacement. New Jersey would also receive $4.1 billion for public transit, and money to build out a network of charging stations for electric vehicles.

The bill also includes funding to help expand broadband internet coverage, providing access to more than 115,000 residents. Another 1.6 million low-income residents would get help paying for their internet service. Separately, there is additional money for Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor and potential funding sources for the Gateway Tunnel project.
