Oklahoma Started 591 Transportation Projects in Year-One of Infrastructure Law, New Report Shows

PR Newswire November 18, 2022 WASHINGTON, Nov. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Oklahoma leveraged $998.7 million in federal highway and bridge formula funds in FY 2022 to help jumpstart 591 new improvement projects in communities across the state during the first year of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), a review of U.S. Treasury Department data through September 30 shows. "A key takeaway from the Treasury data is that the bipartisan infrastructure law is working in year-one as intended, with state transportation departments disbursing funds and projects breaking ground," said American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Chief Economist Dr. Alison Premo Black, who prepared the report. "The economic and quality of life benefits of the infrastructure law will become even more apparent as funding continues in coming years," adds ARTBA Chair Paula Hammond, a WSP USA senior vice president. "The beneficiaries of these long-term investments will be the American traveling public in their communities."
