The BIL provides nearly $1 billion to Missouri for water infrastructure, a needed influx to improve the transport of inland cargo.

Missouri, located in the Midwestern United States, has a diverse economy and a population of over 6 million people. Infrastructure in Missouri is essential to the state's economy and quality of life. The American Society of Civil Engineers gave Missouri a C- on its infrastructure report card.

Transportation is a critical aspect of Missouri's infrastructure, with over 33,000 miles of highways and major interstates running through the state, including I-70 and I-44. The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) manages the state's roads and bridges, and according to their 2020 Annual Report, 75% of Missouri's highways are in good or excellent condition. However, 21% of the state's bridges are in poor or critical condition, and the state ranks 7th nationally for the number of structurally deficient bridges.

Missouri's airports play a significant role in the state's economy, providing over $11 billion in economic activity and supporting more than 100,000 jobs. Kansas City International Airport (MCI) and Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL) are the two largest airports in Missouri, serving millions of passengers each year.

Missouri also has an extensive network of waterways, including the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. The Port of Kansas City and the Port of St. Louis are two of the state's largest inland ports, supporting the transportation of goods and materials.

The state's energy infrastructure includes power plants and transmission lines that serve both residential and industrial customers. Missouri's primary source of electricity is coal, followed by nuclear and natural gas. The state has made significant strides in renewable energy, with wind power generating over 10% of Missouri's electricity in 2020.

In conclusion, Missouri's infrastructure is a vital component of the state's economy and quality of life. While the state's highways are generally in good condition, improvements are needed to address the significant number of structurally deficient bridges. The state's airports and waterways play a critical role in supporting the transportation of goods and people, and Missouri's energy infrastructure is diversifying with the adoption of renewable energy sources.
