SUPERIOR, (CBS 58) -- Fresh off his first State of the Union speech, President Joe Biden and the First Lady traveled to Superior, Wisconsin today.

He visited the John A. Blatnik Memorial Bridge, which connects Superior and Duluth over St. Louis Bay.

The big topic was infrastructure, and Biden discussed how the bipartisan infrastructure will improve roads and bridges and create "good-paying union jobs".

"There are 979 bridges in Wisconsin, 661 bridges in Minnesota that are in poor condition," said Biden. Along with nearly 7,000 miles of highway between your two states that need repair. And now after years of talking about infrastructure, we're finally getting it done."

He met with several members of a construction crew along with some lawmakers including Governor Tony Evers, Senator Tammy Baldwin, Governor Tim Waltz of Minnesota and Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.
