U.S. Sen. Baldwin: Delivers over $1 Million for Waukesha infrastructure project

Funding through Baldwin-backed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will help build new pedestrian bridges to keep walkers, bikers, and drivers safe

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) announced she delivered $1.1 million to help build new pedestrian bridges over US Highway 18 in Waukesha to keep walkers, bikers, and drivers safe. The funding comes from the Baldwin-backed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) program.

“I fought hard to secure this funding to keep Wisconsin families safe, support good paying jobs, and improve the quality of life in our communities,” said Senator Baldwin. “It is critical that everyone – whether taking a bus, biking, or walking – can get where they need to go safely and efficiently, and these new bridges will do just that.”

The $1,116,800 for the Waukesha Bike and Pedestrian Bridge will fund the planning and design of two bike and pedestrian structures over US Highway 18/State Trunk Highway 59 and US Highway 18/State Trunk Highway 59/State Trunk Highway 164.

RAISE grants help states, local communities, and Tribal governments complete critical freight and passenger transportation infrastructure projects. The Baldwin-backed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law appropriated $7.5 billion towards the RAISE program over five years. Additionally, Senator Baldwin has fought to secure additional funding each year through the annual appropriations process.
