Over $2B announced for roads, bridges, bike lanes across US

    PHOENIX (AP) — Numerous transportation projects across the U.S. will be getting a slice of $2.2 billion of new federal funding.

    The grants announced Thursday are more than double the amount awarded last year under the same program.

    The initiative got a major boost this year from a $1 trillion infrastructure law passed by Congress and signed by President Joe Biden.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg traveled to Arizona to highlight a pair of projects that revamp roadways and add new bicycle and pedestrian bridges.

    A total of 166 projects will be getting funding, ranging Alaska to the Virgin Islands.
