State to get $48.9 million for bridge improvements

Gov. Jim Doyle announced Thursday that $48.9 million is available for 209 bridge projects along Wisconsin’s 100,000-mile local roads system.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation oversees the Local Bridge Improvement Assistance Program. This program provides 80 percent federal or state money to replace or rehabilitate deteriorating bridges and requires a 20 percent local money share, according to a news release from the governor’s office.

In Wisconsin, county officials set priorities for local bridge and highway improvement projects. While construction timetables for the projects vary, most of the work is expected to be completed over the next three to five years.
