The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has just announced the availability of additional funding for transportation projects for local roads and bridges as well as safe routes to school and other bike/ped projects. The funding is part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).

There is $2 million available for local roads not typically eligible for federal funding. These include roads functionally classified as a Minor Collector or Local Road located in a community of 50,000 or less population that is not part of a designated metropolitan area. Applications must be for construction projects with designs already completed.

There is also significant funding available for both design and construction of local bridge rehab or replacement projects. The bridge must appear on WisDOT’s eligibility list to qualify for funding.
