The Bridge Investment Program (BIP) provides funding for bridge replacement, rehabilitation, preservation, and protection projects that reduce the number of bridges in poor condition, or in fair condition at risk of declining into poor condition.  

The Bridge Investment Program was established by the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which makes the single largest dedicated investment in bridges since the construction of the Interstate highway system: a total of $40 billion over 5 years to help ensure that some of the nation’s most important bridges remain safe and operational, meet current and future traveler needs, support local economies, strengthen our supply chains, and create good-paying jobs across the country.

The Bridge Investment Program (BIP) has three categories of awards, each requiring a separate application:

  • Planning Level Projects
  • Bridge Projects (<$100 million)
  • Large Bridge Projects (>$100 million)

The deadlines for applications to be submitted are:

  • August 1, 2024, for consideration of FY 2025 funds.
  • August 1, 2025, for consideration of FY 2026 funds.

Eligible Applicants: State Governments; Local Governments; Federally Recognized Tribes and Affiliated Groups; Planning and Project Organizations; U.S. Territories
