Hampton Roads, Stafford County road improvements coming thanks to Biden's infrastructure law

“The bipartisan infrastructure law is continuing to deliver for Virginia’s communities,” said Rep. Abigail Spanberger.


Virginia Beach will get $19 million in federal funding to address flooding issues along a road that connects military installations, agricultural lands and wildlife refuges, and Virginia’s Tidewater and Chesapeake region will get $5.4 million to install a weather and traffic monitoring system to help with emergency evacuations.

Further north, Stafford County is set to get $10.2 million in federal funding to raise and realign part of a road where frequent flooding blocks drivers from accessing it.


As of April 2024, there has been $10 billion in Biden’s infrastructure law funding announced in Virginia for 353 projects, with $6.9 billion for transportation improvements and $1.8 billion for high speed internet.

“After Donald Trump spent four years turning Infrastructure Week into a punchline and left office with the worst jobs record in modern history, Joe Biden has created more than 327,000 jobs in Virginia that Trump’s policies would threaten if elected,” Caroline Stonecipher, a Biden-Harris 2024 campaign spokesperson, said in an email. “From funding much-needed improvements to I-64 to investing $35 million in a new terminal at Dulles Airport, President Biden is delivering in communities across the commonwealth where Trump failed.”
