Governor Scott Walker today announced that payments totaling more than $127.8. million for General Transportation Aids, Connecting Highway Aids and Expressway Policing Aids have been delivered to local governments from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT).

Payments to Wisconsin’s 1,923 local units of government include: $124,533,868 in General Transportation Aids; $3,015,875 to municipalities entitled to receive Connecting Highway Aids; and $255,975 to Milwaukee County for Expressway Policing Aids.

For calendar year 2014, local governments will share an estimated $416.6 million from the state transportation fund to build and maintain local roads and bridges, which includes Expressway Policing Aids to the Milwaukee County Sheriff Department for patrol of Milwaukee expressways. Quarterly payments for cities, towns and villages are sent the first Monday in January, April, July and October. County payments are made in three installments, with 25 percent of the total annual payment on the first Monday in January; 50 percent on the first Monday in July; and 25 percent on the first Monday in October.

General Transportation Aids help defray the costs of constructing, maintaining, and operating roads and streets under local jurisdiction. Connecting Highway Aids reimburse municipalities for maintenance and traffic control of certain state highways within municipalities.

Communities also receive state transportation fund revenues for public transit, elderly and disabled transportation, and airport and harbor development. In addition, state and federal funds are allocated for specific highway and bridge construction projects.
