Here’s what’s in Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan and how he plans to pay for it

April 1, 2021

President Joe Biden says his proposal for an aggressive series of infrastructure investments would require $2 trillion in spending over eight years but could create millions of jobs. It would be funded by higher corporate taxes. A closer look at where the money is going and where it’s coming from: $115 billion to modernize the bridges, highways and roads that are in the worst shape. The White House outline estimated 20,000 miles (32,187 kilometers) of roadways would be repaired, while economically significant bridges and 10,000 smaller bridges would get fixed. $85 billion for public transit, doubling the federal government’s commitment in an effort to shorten the repair backlog and expand service.
