Federal COVID relief funding advances highway construction

$147.3 million aids 42 projects statewide

Release date: March 23, 2021

Federal COVID Relief funding approved in late 2020 will allow 42 highway construction projects totaling $147.3 million to advance ahead of schedule across the state, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced today.

“Wisconsin, like other states, experienced transportation revenue shortfalls as a result of the pandemic and this helps put us back on course," said WisDOT Secretary-designee Craig Thompson.

WisDOT is rapidly investing the federal COVID Relief funding to accelerate bridge and pavement construction projects that will improve the safety and pavement conditions on highways throughout the state.

Projects were selected to address priority roadway and bridge condition needs throughout the state of Wisconsin (see attached map). In state fiscal year 2021, 10 projects will begin construction; in state fiscal year 2022, 32 projects will begin construction.

A complete list of the projects follows.
