Duluth, GA — Today, Representative Lucy McBath (GA-07) hosted Mitch Landrieu, Senior Advisor to President Biden and White House Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator, in Gwinnett County. In his role in the Biden-Harris Administration, Landrieu is responsible for coordinating implementation of the President’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. During the visit, McBath and Landrieu met with local elected officials and regional transportation stakeholders to discuss federal investments in transportation and infrastructure in the Atlanta metropolitan region.

McBath and Landrieu visited Curiosity Lab in Peachtree Corners and hosted members of the press. Joining to speak were Gwinnett County Department of Transportation Director Lewis Cooksey, MARTA General Manager and CEO Collie Greenwood, and Atlanta Regional Commission Executive Director Anna Roach.

“In the first few years of the Biden-Harris Administration, we have seen transformational growth in the American working class from the middle out and the bottom up,” said McBath. “We know how important it is to support opportunities for growth and progress in our communities, and I am proud to be joined by Senior Advisor to President Biden and White House Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator, Mitch Landrieu, as advocates and champions of these investments in our future.”

“President Biden is committed to investing in America and rebuilding our economy from the bottom up and middle out – and it’s working here in Georgia,” said Senior Advisor to the President and White House Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator Mitch Landrieu. “Our progress on transportation projects in the Atlanta metro area and beyond are further proof that when we work together, we can build a better America that makes it easier for families to see their loved ones, creates good-paying jobs and strengthens the economy – all while ensuring no one is left behind.”

McBath has advocated for historic federal investments that are shaping the futures of Georgia families. Those investments include a $20 million RAISE grant that was awarded this year and will provide Gwinnett County a new hub for transit, a nearly $1 million award to conduct a study on safer railroad crossings, and a SMART grant award to fund technology innovation along the Singleton Road corridor. Through the historic work of the Biden-Harris administration and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, these projects will improve transit, support efficiency, and save lives in Georgia.
