The Local Bridge Improvement Assistance Program helps rehabilitate and replace, on a cost-shared basis, the most seriously deficient existing local bridges on Wisconsin's local highway systems.

Counties, cities, villages, and towns are eligible for rehabilitation funding on bridges with sufficiency ratings of 80 or less, and replacement funding on bridges with sufficiency ratings less than 50.

For 2022-2027 program development, total funds available for the Local Bridge Program are $131,002,555. This amount is based on anticipated federal local program levels for fiscal years 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026 and 2027. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will significantly increase future program funding levels.  Program funding levels will be updated as necessary pending state biennial budget changes and federal reauthorization.

The Local Bridge Program received 141 project requests for a total of $104,577,564 in state/federal funds. WisDOT approved 141 Local Bridge improvement requests for the 2022-2027 Program Cycle totaling $104,577,564.
