Over the next five years, Nevada is set to receive more than 4 billion dollars under the $1.2 trillion-dollar infrastructure package signed into law by President Joe Biden last week. 

The money includes billions to build and maintain roads and bridges, more than 750 million to improve public transit and airports. Another 100 million dollars is dedicated to expanding broadband access.  

But how will it affect Nevada? And will the money go where it is most needed?
