Gov. Tony Evers, together with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), today announced the next cycle of funding from the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) will provide more than $235 million for more than 150 local road and bridge projects in 66 counties across the state.
“We’ve been working hard to improve more than 4,600 miles of highways and locally owned roads while making the long-term investments in our state’s infrastructure, and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is going to help ensure we can continue building on our work into the future,” said Gov. Evers. “By investing in state and local transportation projects, we’re demonstrating our commitment to continuing this work and to providing the people of Wisconsin with a safe, dependable, and multi-modal transportation system that will serve our state for years to come. With this once-in-a-generation funding, we’re improving the quality of life for Wisconsinites in every corner of the state and strengthening our state’s economic future.”
Since 2019, according to WisDOT, the Evers Administration has improved more than 4,600 miles of highways and roads, including more than 1,700 miles of locally owned roads and nearly 1,500 bridges across the state.
