The funding Stanton and Gallego helped secure can be used to build and repair roads, bridges, and electric vehicle infrastructure.

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Reps. Greg Stanton (AZ-04) and Ruben Gallego (AZ-03) announced $1,069,760,974 in funding for Arizona’s highways, bridges, and electric vehicle (EV) network thanks to the historic investments of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

“Our Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was a long overdue investment in the highways and bridges Arizonans rely on every day—and the electric vehicle network that will power our state’s future,” Rep. Stanton said. “My focus remains on getting these historic funds directly into the hands of Arizona communities so we can improve safety, reduce pollution and cut down on gridlock for both commuters and commercial vehicles.”

“Investing in Arizona’s highways and infrastructure is good for growing our economy, increasing tourism, and connecting families across the state,” said Rep. Gallego. “I am proud of our efforts to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law—without it, these funds would not be possible. This is how we're showing up and delivering for our state, and I look forward to continuing to find meaningful solutions that improve the lives of everyday Arizonans.”

The funds announced today come from three formula programs: the Federal-Aid Highway Apportionments, the Bridge Formula, and the NEVI EV Charging.

  • Federal-Aid Highway Apportionments ($1,008,470,158): The Federal-Aid Highway Apportionments, which represent the majority of highway funding in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, includes programs like the National Highway Performance Program, the Highway Safety Improvement Program, the highway freight program, and the new climate mitigation and resilience programs.
  • Bridge Formula ($45,000,000): The new bridge formula program, created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, funds the repair and replacement of bridges across Arizona.
  • NEVI EV Charging ($16,290,816): The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law also created the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program, which funds EV charging infrastructure so Arizona can continue to build out a network of EV chargers.
