Since day one, Governor Gretchen Whitmer has believed that repairing, rebuilding, and reimagining Michigan’s infrastructure – from roads to water to high-speed internet – is the key to shared prosperity. And she has delivered. From unprecedented investment in state trunklines through Rebuilding Michigan, to a commitment to removing lead service lines ahead of schedule through the MI Clean Water Plan, to the creation of the Michigan High-Speed Internet Office and the Office of Future Mobility and Electrification, Governor Whitmer has laid the foundation for 21st-century infrastructure in Michigan. 

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

When Congress passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), Governor Whitmer recognized a once-in-a-generation opportunity to get things done for everyday Michiganders. The BIL will rebuild America’s roads, bridges and rails, expand access to clean drinking water, ensure every American has access to high-speed internet, tackle the climate crisis, advance environmental justice, and invest in communities that have too often been left behind.

Governor Whitmer established the Michigan Infrastructure Office (MIO) to ensure resources sent to Michigan through BIL, also known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) are used efficiently and effectively. 

Michigan can expect to receive upwards of $11 billion through BIL from 2022 to 2026. The IIJA includes funding opportunities across many asset classes, including, but not limited to:

  • $7.3 billion to fix roads
  • $563 million for bridge replacement or repairs
  • $1 billion to improve public transportation
  • $1.3 billion to improve water infrastructure
  • $1.7 billion to expand high-speed internet access
  • $110 million to boost the state’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure

The Michigan Infrastructure Office, intentionally housed within the Governor’s Executive Office to underscore the state’s commitment to investing in its infrastructure, is responsible for organizing and executing the governor's vision for infrastructure, coordinating across state government, marshalling resources, and partnering with local official, federal partners, and outside stakeholders.
