Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker recently said 1,924 local governments have received a total of approximately $83.5 million from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) for Expressway Policing Aids, Connecting Highway Aids and General Transportation Aids.
Payments include $225,975 to Milwaukee County for Expressway Policing Aids; $3,015,874 to various municipalities for Connecting Highway Aids; and $80,315,117 for General Transportation Aids.
The funds will be distributed to villages, towns and cities in the form of quarterly payments on the first Mondays of January, April, July, and October. Counties will receive payments in three installments.
Experts estimate that approximately $432.7 million will be shared between the local governments in 2015. This amount will be taken from the state transportation fund in order that the communities may maintain and build bridges and local roads. These projects include Expressway Policing Aids for Milwaukee County.
