WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Governor Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced today, on July 15, that the first year of funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will provide $22.5 million for 25 projects. This will be in Wisconsin areas with populations above 50,000.

Officials say the $22.5 million in funding was distributed based on population.
