The Michigan Municipal League and The Michigan Association of Mayors Joint Statement on Bridge Funding for Michigan
The following is a joint statement from the board presidents of the Michigan Municipal League and Michigan Association of Mayors.
“We often fail to recognize that more than 1,200 bridges in Michigan that we drive on every day and connect our students to schools, employees to jobs, and products to stores are rated in poor condition. Today’s announcement that Michigan will be receiving over $500 million in funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law over the next five years represents a monumental investment in dedicated bridge funding and will ensure these vital pieces of infrastructure can safely help us transport people and goods.”
