WisDOT: More than $14 million approved for 28 community transportation projects
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- More than $14 million in funding was approved for 28 community transportation projects through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Transportation Alternatives Project (TAP).
The projects expand travel choice to strengthen the local economy and improve the quality of life, as well as protect the environment by supporting non-traditional projects, according to WisDOT.
“Thank you to a broad coalition of representatives from across Wisconsin for helping select projects that will create safer routes to school, stronger communities and more travel options,” Craig Thompson, WisDOT Secretary-designee said. “Trails and paths not only support many uses, they grow local economies and improve the quality of life.”
TAP is a reimbursement program and are generally funded 80% federally with a 20% local match.
