Governor Evers’ Plan to Invest in Wisconsin Transportation Approved

MADISON, WI — Governor Evers’ plan to invest $282.9 million in Wisconsin’s infrastructure recently won overwhelming bipartisan approval from the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Finance. Approval from this committee is the last step needed for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) to deploy Wisconsin’s allocation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) for infrastructure improvements throughout the state.

“We assembled a plan that invests in local roads, bridges, state highways, bike and pedestrian facilities, and congestion and air quality improvement projects all over Wisconsin,” Evers said. “After years of neglect, we have improved more than 1,700 miles of roads and nearly 1,300 bridges. This federal spending plan builds upon the transportation investments made in my previous two budgets so we can fix the roads and provide Wisconsinites the transportation system they need and deserve.”

“I am grateful to the committee members for approving the plan and to our local partners — the towns, municipalities, and counties — for helping us create a plan to ensure this federal funding is efficiently deployed to projects in communities throughout the state,” WisDOT Secretary Craig Thompson said.

The plan to invest the BIL funding for this Federal Fiscal Year includes:

  • Local roads: $83,843,000
  • Local bridges: $60,730,200
  • State highways: $123,566,800
  • Bike and pedestrian facilities: $10,543,600
  • Congestion, mitigation, and air quality: $4,288,000
