Projects benefiting Great Lakes region receive multi-million dollar boost from infrastructure law

White House announces Great Lakes projects among $14B awarded

Major projects benefiting the Great Lakes region will receive a large infusion of funding as part of $14 billion awarded through the Biden administration’s bipartisan infrastructure law and other sources, the White House announced on Wednesday.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be able to finish a long-awaited new lock to handle the largest vessels moving between Lake Superior and the lower Great Lakes as part of nearly $479 million awarded through the bipartisan infrastructure law.  

The infrastructure funding will also provide a $226 million boost to a project that seeks to keep the invasive Asian carp out of the Great Lakes.
