Pennsylvania Governor Highlights Anticipated Funding Through Federal Infrastructure Plan

HARRISBURG, PA — Governor Tom Wolf shares an overview of enhancements Pennsylvania anticipates receiving through the passage of President Joe Biden's $1.2-trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

"This comprehensive package will provide critical federal funding to Pennsylvania's infrastructure, support economic growth throughout the commonwealth, and provide stable, good-paying jobs for Pennsylvanians," Wolf said.

Based on historical formula funding, the White House anticipates Pennsylvania receiving the following infrastructure improvements with federal funding:

  • Repair and rebuild roads and bridges with a focus on climate change mitigation, resilience, equity, and safety for all users, including cyclists and pedestrians. Based on formula funding, Pennsylvania would expect to receive $11.3 billion for federal-aid highway apportioned programs and $1.6 billion for bridge replacement and repairs.
  • Improve health, sustainable transportation options. Through formula funding, Pennsylvania expects to receive $2.8 billion over five years to improve public transportation options across the commonwealth.
  • Build a network of electronic vehicle (EV) chargers to facilitate long-distance travel and provide charging options. Pennsylvania expects to receive $171 million over five years to support the expansion of an EV charging network across the commonwealth.
  • Help connect every Pennsylvanian to reliable high-speed internet. Pennsylvania will receive a minimum allocation of $100 million to help provide broadband coverage across the commonwealth, including providing access to the at least 394,000 Pennsylvanians who currently lack coverage.
  • Prepare more infrastructure for the impacts of climate change, cyber-attacks, and extreme weather events. Based on historical formula funding levels, Pennsylvanian will expect to receive $49 million over five years to protect against wildfires and $26 million to protect against cyber-attacks.
  • Deliver clean drinking water to Pennsylvanians. Based on the traditional state revolving fund formula, Pennsylvania will expect to receive $1.4 billion over five years to improve water infrastructure and ensure clean, safe drinking water throughout the commonwealth.
