Georgia Republicans Celebrate National Pothole Day

January 15, 2022

Today, Georgia Republicans are celebrating National Pothole Day in observance of all the pavement cracks and road craters they would prefer to remain unfilled, given their unanimous opposition to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The Biden-Harris administration, on the other hand, is working to make National Pothole Day a holiday no more with an $8.9 billion investment in Georgia to improve our state’s roads, pathways, and transportation network. 

“This National Pothole Day, let’s take the time to recognize all eight Republican members of Congress representing Georgia who voted to keep our potholes unfilled and roads unpaved when they opposed President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” Rhyan Lake, Spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Georgia, said. “Georgians deserve to commute without risking damage to their vehicles or themselves, which is why the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is so monumental for our state’s roads. Despite Georgia Republicans’ best efforts to keep National Pothole Day an annual celebration for their party, the Biden-Harris administration is undertaking the most significant effort to repair and rebuild our transportation network in a generation.”

Read more about how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will improve transportation in Georgia:

  • Based on formula funding alone, Georgia would expect to receive $8.9 billion for federal-aid highway apportioned programs and $225 million for bridge replacement and repairs under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act over five years.
  • Georgia can also compete for the $12.5 billion Bridge Investment Program for economically significant bridges and nearly $16 billion of national funding in the bill dedicated for major projects that will deliver substantial economic benefits to communities.
