— Wisconsin is in line for nearly $6.2 billion over five years under the infrastructure bill now before the U.S. Senate and could qualify for more, according to the White House.
The bulk of that is $5.2 billion for highway programs with another $225 million for bridge replacement and repairs, according to a fact sheet from the White House.
The state could also compete for $12.5 billion in the package for economically significant bridges and nearly $16 billion in national funding for major projects with substantial economic benefits.
Other possible funding over the next five years includes:
*$595 million to improve public transportation;
*$79 million to support the expansion of Wisconsin’s electrical vehicle charging network. There is an additional $2.5 billion in the package that states can seek;
*$100 million to expand broadband coverage. The package also includes funds that would help nearly 1.3 million Wisconsinites afford internet access.
