Governor touts DOT grants for local transit projects as a good start

 Governor Tony Evers is promoting a grant program to give local governments in Door and Kewaunee counties and statewide money for additional road repair work.  The $75-million grant program was agreed to during negotiations for the 2019-2021 budget.  During a visit to Northeast Wisconsin, Governor Evers called the grant program a first step to more reliable funding for state and local roads.



Wisconsin Department of Transportation Assistant Deputy Secretary Joel Nilsestuen joined Governor Evers on his recent visit.  He explained briefly how communities can apply for the grants and the types of local projects they'll benefit from.



The state legislature rejected the gas tax proposal.  The one-year transportation grant program was adopted as an alternative option.
