Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)


The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), aka Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), was signed into law on November 15, 2021. The law authorizes $1.2 trillion for transportation and infrastructure spending over five years from FY 2022 through FY 2026, with $550 billion in new infrastructure spending above current baseline levels. Of that amount, $274 billion is allocated to transportation programs. When added to baseline spending, the bill provides $567 billion in guaranteed transportation funding over five years. Programs in the IIJA range from all modes of transportation, water, power and energy, environmental remediation, public lands, broadband and resiliency.
