Wisconsin Bridge Improvement Funding

Governor Doyle announces $65.5 million for local bridge improvements
Governor Jim Doyle today announced the distribution of $65.5 million in
federal and state dollars to fund 308 bridge projects along Wisconsin’s
approximately 100,000-mile local roads system.  The Wisconsin Department of
Transportation (WisDOT) oversees the Local Bridge Improvement Assistance
Program.  This program provides 80 percent federal or state funding to
replace or rehabilitate deteriorating bridges and requires a 20 percent
local funding share.

“This federal, state and local partnership will complete necessary
improvements to local bridges throughout the state.  These projects will
enhance public safety and support economic development along our local
transportation network,” Governor Doyle said.  

In Wisconsin, county officials set priorities for local bridge and highway
improvement projects.  While construction timetables for the projects vary,
most of the work is expected to be completed over the next three to five
years.  A list of projects being funded through the Local Bridge Improvement
Assistance Program can be viewed on the WisDOT Web site at:
