Assists local governments with replacing or repairing roadways or roadway structure damage on
all federal-aid highways (major collectors and above) resulting from a catastrophic failure or natural disaster.
The second largest program in WisDOT’s budget, GTA returns to local governments roughly 21.8 % of all state-collected transportation revenues (fuel taxes and vehicle registration fees) - helping offset the cost of county and municipal road construction, maintenance, traffic and other transportation-related costs.
Reimburses the cities of Milwaukee, Racine, Green Bay, Manitowoc
and Two Rivers for costs associated with the operation of 10 lift
bridges on connecting highways within these communities that provide
connections to the State Trunk Highway System.
Assists local governments in improving seriously deteriorating
county highways, town roads, and city and village streets. The
program has three basic components: County Highway Improvement
(CHIP); Town Road Improvement (TRIP); and Municipal Street
Improvement (MSIP). Three additional discretionary programs (CHIP-D,
TRIP-D and MSIP-D) allow municipalities to apply for additional
funds for high-cost road projects.
This tool will replace a local application, available only to WisDOT staff,
with a centrally maintained Extranet Web system that can be used by anyone with
authorized WAMS ID access and Internet connectivity.
The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) produces
a four-year plan of highway and transit projects for the state of
Wisconsin. Revised every year, the plan is a compilation of all
highway (state or local) and transit (capital or operating) projects
in urban and rural areas that propose to use federal funds.
