Infrastructure Means Jobs and Long-Term Growth for Our Community

Dear friend,

As we begin rebuilding our economy and middle class after the pandemic, I am fighting for critical infrastructure projects in our community that will make our day-to-day lives easier and create good-paying jobs. This week, the House took an important step towards reimagining our nation’s roads, bridges, rail, transit, and water infrastructure by passing the INVEST in America Act and sending it to the Senate.

This package would invest over $715 billion over five years into long-overdue infrastructure projects around the country, including over $17.6 million dollars that I secured for roads, bridges, trails, and culverts in Washington’s 1st Congressional District. These funds will go toward new trail connections in Kirkland and Redmond; new roads in Darrington, Lake Stevens, Carnation, and Sultan; highway improvements that will improve safety and reduce congestion in Snohomish County; fish passable culvert replacement in Kenmore; and a study for the replacement of the Highway 2 Trestle in Lake Stevens and Everett. You can read more about these WA-01 infrastructure projects below.

The INVEST in America Act is a piece of the broader infrastructure discussion happening at the federal level and while it is separate from the bipartisan deal reached by the President, the bill works toward many of the goals outlined by President Biden’s jobs proposal. Infrastructure is more than roads and bridges, it is what connects us to our jobs, families, and communities. That’s why we must go further to pass Biden’s American Jobs Plan, which will help us expand affordable and reliable broadband access, create more affordable housing, invest in our caregiving workforce, and build the infrastructure of the future.

I will continue to fight for these transformative infrastructure packages, which are necessary steps for our country as we build back better.

As always, I am here to help you. If you need assistance at this difficult time, please don’t hesitate to leave a message with my Kirkland office at (425) 485-0085. For more updates on what I’m doing for WA-01, you can follow me on social media at the links above.

Stay safe and stay healthy,
