Door and Kewaunee counties would benefit from $75-million in new transportation grant funds for local and county highway departments. The one-time funding for transportation projects is part of the recently approved 2019-21 state budget. County and local transportation officials are still learning the specifics of the grants. Kewaunee County Highway Commissioner Todd Every says once those details are known his department could adjust its' five-year capital improvement budget to include the grants. Every says such funding is expected to target specific areas.
Wisconsin's Department of Transportation is scheduled to meet with local and county transit leaders August 27th to explain more about the transit grants.
