What benefits will Illinois see from infrastructure deal?


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — President Biden’s $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal passed the House on Friday, and Illinois will benefit from that massive bill in multiple ways.

Of the money, $1.7 billion will go to improving drinking and wastewater infrastructure. Roads, bridges and public transportation will also receive billions of dollars for improvements.

In addition, $100 million will go to providing broadband coverage across the state, and the Illinois’ airports will get about $616 million to improve.

Lastly, $149 million over five years will help to support the expansion of electric vehicle charging throughout the state.
