Congressman Castro helps delivers $537.1 Million for Texas Bridges from Infrastructure Law

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Supports Local Jobs by Making the Largest Investment in Fixing American Bridges in History

SAN ANTONIO — Today, Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20) announced the first round of investments in repairing Texas bridges under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Law. Congressman Castro helped deliver $107.4 million for Texas to fix bridges this year in FY 2022, part of a total $537.1 million investment over the next five years. 

The funding, determined by the Federal Highway Administration’s bridge formula program, is available to improve the condition of 818 bridges in poor condition and to preserve and improve more than 26,128 bridges in fair condition in the state.

“The Infrastructure Law is delivering real results for San Antonio, Texas and all of America,” said Congressman Castro. “Texans are well aware of the fact that too many of our state’s bridges are in poor condition – affecting daily commutes to school and work, moving commerce, and helping us stay connected. Bridges are a vital piece of our infrastructure, and this historic five-year investment will modernize transportation while improving Texans’ everyday lives.” 

The Infrastructure Law also includes a separate program designed to support larger bridges through a competitive grant program. Details on that program will be announced at a later date.
