Revitalizing Infrastructure in the US with the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

After decades of underinvestment and deteriorating assets, recent legislation and emerging technologies have the potential to drive transformative change that positively impacts millions of people across the country. Can we collectively rise to the occasion?


What’s in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law?

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law—also known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act—is a once-in-a-generation investment in the United States’ core infrastructure. The bipartisan legislation provides for $1.2 trillion in spending over the next five years, including $550 billion in new spending for roads, bridges, public transit, power systems, broadband, water systems, climate resilience, and more.

This investment presents a massive opportunity for federal, state, and local governments to rebuild the country’s aging cities, roads, and bridges. It will create new jobs, combat climate change, and spur economic opportunity for disadvantaged communities. The 2021 Infrastructure Bill also presents opportunities for the industries that partner with governments to plan, develop, and operate US infrastructure.

BCG works closely with federal, state, and local governments—as well as partner industries—to help invest public dollars efficiently and equitably in:

Infrastructure Challenges, Old and New in Transportation

Resolving these issues will mean sitting down with experts to uncover new solutions—and new opportunities.
