Wisconsin Governor Funding Local Transportation with $129.7M Quarterly Aid Payment

MADISON, WI — Governor Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) announce that municipalities across the state received nearly $130 million in the fourth quarterly payments for 2021 for General Transportation, Connecting Highway, and Expressway Policing Aids.

For calendar year 2020, local governments received more than $505 million in general transportation aids (GTA) financial assistance to support transportation related projects, a 10 percent increase over calendar year 2019 allocations.

“Working cooperatively with local governments is essential to a good transportation system that delivers all the way through the last mile,” WisDOT Secretary Craig Thompson said. “We are dedicated to making good investments together that improve safety, economic opportunity, and quality of life.”

The local assistance increase was part of more than $465 million in additional funding for transportation projects included in the last (2019-2021) state budget, which was the largest dedication of new, ongoing revenue to the transportation fund in a generation.

The fourth quarter payments totaled $129,698,459.77 and included:

  • General Transportation Aids - $126,426,608.70 to all local units of government
  • Connecting Highway Aids - $3,015,876.07 in CHA to 116 eligible municipalities
  • Expressway Policing Aids - $255,975.00 to Milwaukee County
