Mayor Durkan Statement Following the Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

Seattle (November 6, 2021) – Mayor Jenny A. Durkan issued the following statement regarding the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal:

“Passing President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal is transformational for cities across the nation – it will deliver new good-paying union jobs, expand transit opportunities and combat climate change. This generational investment in workers and infrastructure will advance Seattle’s vision for more equitable access to transit, further electrify our city, promote environmental justice programs, and allow us to repair our aging bridges.
