Local Bridge Improvement Assistance

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 2020-2025 program development, total funds available for the Local Bridge Program are $144,435,305. This amount is based on anticipated federal local program levels for fiscal years 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 and 2025.

The Local Bridge Program received 95 project requests for a total of $68,167,678 in state/federal funds. WisDOT approved 95 Local Bridge improvement requests for the 2020-2025 Program Cycle totaling $68,167,678.
