Titus Announces $543.8 Million for Nevada’s Infrastructure

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Dina Titus (NV-01), Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management, announced $543.8 million in Fiscal Year 2024 Federal Highway Administration apportionments for Nevada, made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law she championed and helped pass in the House.

“Last Congress, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law made long-overdue, historic investments in our infrastructure. Since then I’ve continued to keep Nevada’s roads, bridges, and public transit top of mind, from my work on the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee to funding I’ve fought to bring back to District One,” said Rep. Titus. “It’s great to know that this allocation will help our state make our infrastructure safer, more resilient, and more efficient on behalf of Southern Nevada’s families and businesses.”

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law comprises the single largest investment in transportation infrastructure in the United States since the construction of the Interstate Highway System during the Eisenhower Administration and addresses critical infrastructure needs in every state in the country, including Nevada.
