“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., were on hand for a ceremony on Monday for the announcement of a $400 million federal grant to provide improvements to the Golden Gate Bridge. The grant is for a seismic retrofit project to protect the bridge from a large-scale earthquake. The money is coming from the federal government’s Bridge Improvement Program that is part of the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, commonly known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill. ‘From the very moment that it opened, this bridge has stood as one of the most essential and recognizable in our country,’ Buttigieg said. ‘Its location, its proportions, its design make it not just the defining emblem of the Bay Area, but one of the great physical emblems of the United States itself.'” (01/23/23)
