WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), a senior member of the Senate Commerce Committee, announced that the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) will receive $21.1 million in federal funding. These funds will be used to reconstruct parts of Interstate 80 and to replace a rural bridge in Buffalo County.

In 2021, Senator Fischer voted for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which provided funding for the Multimodal Project Discretionary Grant from the Department of Transportation (DOT). In August, Senator Fischer also sent a
 letter of support to U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

"I was proud to vote for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to support Nebraska’s roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects. Nebraska continues to see a return on that investment, as our state will now receive $21.1 million to support bridge construction and other improvements to I-80--an essential thoroughfare that connects families and businesses from across the state,” said Senator Fischer.
