The president has been making the rounds promoting the bill passed last year.

President Joe Biden is scheduled to travel to Superior next week, one day after delivering his State of the Union speech to Congress, in another trip promoting the benefits of the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed last year.

“This will be a generational investment to modernize our infrastructure,” Biden had said during a visit to La Crosse last June, when the bill’s passage was still far from certain.

Last week, Biden visited Ohio to boost a $1 billion investment from the infrastructure plan to accelerate cleanup of polluted hotspots on the Great Lakes.

The additional funding is expected to fast-track restoration of four polluted sites in Wisconsin, including the St. Louis River that runs between Superior and Duluth, Minnesota.
