With the approval of the infrastructure plan by the House on Thursday, July 1, 2021, Culver City is poised to receive $3.5 million for public transit. The full $715 billion infrastructure plan will help to develop transit and water infrastructure through the nation. With Senate approval and a Presidential signature, it would be the nation’s largest infrastructure investment since the 1960’s.
The infrastructure bill includes more than $900 million for projects throughout California including bridges, bike lanes and express lanes, railway expansions, electric vehicle charging stations, zero emission transit fleets, tunnels, transportation hubs, wastewater and drinking water projects.
According to Reuters, “INVEST in America Act” contains more than $44 billion added during the amendment process to make greater investments in infrastructure, including electric vehicle charging and passenger rail grant programs.
