Bill Text p. 24 (PDF)

Washington, D.C. – United States Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) released the below statement on the inclusion of $350 million in federal funding for the Cape Cod Canal Bridges in the Senate’s Fiscal Year 2024 Energy and Water Development Appropriations bill, a major victory in their fight to secure federal funding for the project to replace the aging Bourne and Sagamore Bridges on Cape Cod. The funding provision matches a request from President Biden in his FY24 budget to provide an initial $350 million toward a total commitment of $600 million for the bridges.

“Securing $350 million in the Senate Appropriations bill is a critical win in the decades-long effort to replace the aging Cape Cod Canal bridges. We will continue pushing to ensure this funding is signed into law and appreciate our ongoing partnership with Governor Healey, the Biden Administration and Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Murray as we continue to prioritize this federal investment in our infrastructure.”
