The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced Tuesday that $1.56 billion will go towards Michigan’s infrastructure.

“America’s roads and bridges are the vital arteries of our transportation system, connecting people and goods across the country,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “We are sending historic levels of funding to every state to help modernize the roads and bridges Americans rely on every day.”

For the 2023 fiscal year, Michigan is set to have 12 formula programs to support the investment in the state’s critical infrastructure:

  • National Highway Performance Program: $761,748,497
  • Surface Transportation Block Grant: $370,580,350
  • Highway Safety Improvement Program: $78,473,158
  • Railway-Highway Crossings Program: $7,903,681
  • Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality Program: $82,248,200
  • Metropolitan Planning: $13,934,218
  • National Highway Freight Program: $37,244,408
  • Carbon Reduction Program: $33,043,414
  • PROTECT Formula Program: $37,572,730
  • National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program: $23,442,593
  • Bridge Formula Program: $121,633,126

The funding is to support transportation leaders with flexibility to continue infrastructure projects.

In Fiscal Year 2023, Michigan will receive a total of $121.6 million in Bridge Formula funding to address highway bridge needs. The funding is available to improve the condition of about 1,270 bridges in poor condition and to preserve and improve about 6,095 bridges in fair condition in the state, that are at risk of falling into poor condition.

“Formula programs give states the flexibility they need to determine how to allocate funds in order to replace deficient bridges, improve safety for all road users, and reduce carbon emissions by improving transportation infrastructure for communities throughout each state,” said Acting Federal Highway Administrator Stephanie Pollack.
