Infrastructure Law and Policy

News and analysis focusing on the full spectrum of infrastructure-related issues facing state and local governments, including developments in legislation, policies, and projects

Welcome to Dykema’s Infrastructure Law and Policy Blog

The Infrastructure Law and Policy Blog will cover developments in infrastructure-related laws, policies, and projects in a number of states where members of the firm are actively engaged in these important issues. Our initial notes will start with the State of Michigan, where state leaders are currently focused on four key infrastructure areas: roads and bridges, mass transit, sewer and water, and broadband internet. Some of the main projects for this initiative include addressing the Flint water crisis, updating pipes for natural gas transmission, and expanding the Soo Locks. We will also be following developments on the restructuring of the Detroit Public Schools as it relates to the repurposing of school buildings. As the Governor, Legislature, and local governments continue to grapple with these important issues, this blog will serve as a reliable source for information on the law, policy and legislation developed to address infrastructure-related concerns.
