The BIL will inject $5.3 billion into roads and bridges and $1.8 billion into transit through 2027, helping the state close its funding gaps.

Washington state boasts a modern and robust infrastructure that supports its population of nearly 8 million residents and numerous businesses. Its transportation network is comprehensive and reliable, with a variety of options for commuters and goods movement. The American Society of Civil Engineers gave Washington a C on its infrastructure report card.

Roadways are a primary mode of transportation in Washington, with over 7,000 miles of state highways, and 139,000 miles of local roads. The state's highway system is in good condition, with only 5% of the state's bridges and 6% of its pavement in poor condition. The state invested over $2.6 billion in transportation infrastructure in 2021.

The state's airports also play a vital role in transportation, with 16 commercial airports and over 130 public-use airports. The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the country, with over 31 million passengers in 2021.

Washington's ports are another critical component of the state's infrastructure, with the Port of Seattle being the busiest container port in the Pacific Northwest. The state's maritime industry generates over $30 billion in economic activity each year.

Washington's energy infrastructure includes a diverse mix of sources, including hydroelectric power, wind, solar, and natural gas. The state has the highest percentage of renewable energy generation of any state in the country, with over 80% of its electricity coming from renewable sources.

In addition to transportation and energy infrastructure, Washington has invested heavily in its broadband infrastructure in recent years. The state has a goal of providing universal access to broadband by 2024, and over $400 million has been invested in broadband expansion projects since 2019.

Overall, Washington's infrastructure is in good condition and is poised to support the state's continued economic growth and development. The state's investments in transportation, energy, and broadband infrastructure demonstrate its commitment to ensuring that residents and businesses have the resources they need to thrive.
