Biden to speak in Cleveland about infrastructure

Written by 

CLEVELAND (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden will visit Cleveland to stress the importance of the U.S. spending money on infrastructure to keep roads and bridges safe.

Biden was scheduled to speak Wednesday afternoon at a Cleveland Regional Transit Authority rail complex to highlight the reconstruction of a light rail station near University Circle. The area contains many of Cleveland's cultural landmarks, such as Severance Hall, the home of the Cleveland Orchestra, and Case Western Reserve University, a top research institution.

President Barack Obama's administration is highlighting infrastructure investment in the U.S. this week. Obama was scheduled to travel Wednesday to New York City, where the Tappan Zee Bridge is being replaced using a $1.6 billion federal loan.
