MIAMI, FL – Recently, Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (FL-24) celebrated historic funding provided by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act for Miami-Dade County and Florida’s 24th Congressional District.
“Today is a great day for Miami-Dade County, the largest county in Florida’s 24th Congressional District, and the district as a whole as we mark the most historic investment in our nation’s infrastructure to-date: the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act,” said Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson. “As Founder and Chair of the Florida Ports Caucus and one of only five Democratic members permitted to cosponsor this bill in the House of Representatives, I am proud to have fought tirelessly to secure such critical funding for my constituents.”
“This monumental funding is the result of the unrelenting efforts of President Biden and House Democrats,” continued Congresswoman Wilson. “My mantra in Congress has always been ‘Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!’, and I look forward to the unprecedented advancements that this funding will provide throughout the district for both infrastructure and jobs.”
“Improving our public transit system is one of my top priorities,” said Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “I am grateful to the Biden administration, Congresswoman Wilson and all of our federal partners. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act allows us to accelerate transit improvements with the goal of delivering the best transportation experience for our community.”
“We are extremely grateful for the support from Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson, Congress and President Biden,” said Eulois Cleckley, Director and CEO of the Miami-Dade Department of Transportation and Public Works. “Thanks to this increase in formula funding, we have already begun to advance several projects and programs that modernize our aging infrastructure, improve service reliability, and support our existing transit services for the residents and visitors of Miami-Dade County.”
