Michigan's 'once in lifetime' $10B infrastructure boost faces challenges

Washington — President Joe Biden on Monday signed into law the largest investment in the nation's infrastructure in decades, and Michigan will receive what one expert called a "once in a lifetime" boost of at least $10 billion for its highways, bridges and more.

Although the infusion of money will provide crucial support for the state's ailing infrastructure, it still isn't enough to make up for decades of underinvestment, experts said. They also note that the massive amount of funding may run up against some logistical challenges, including grappling with a labor and raw materials shortage.
