Local Bridge Improvement Assistance 

The Local Bridge Improvement Assistance Program helps rehabilitate and replace, on a cost-shared basis, the most seriously deficient existing local bridges on Wisconsin's local highway systems.

Counties, cities, villages, and towns are eligible for rehabilitation funding on bridges with sufficiency ratings of 80 or less, and replacement funding on bridges with sufficiency ratings less than 50.

The 2013 National Bridge Inventory (NBI) list is now available. Contact your County Highway Commissioner for a copy.

The calendar year 2013 application process for the 2013-2018 Program Cycle is now complete.


WisDOT will begin accepting applications for the next Local Bridge Improvement Assistance program cycle (2015-2020) in early March 2015. Information on the next cycle will be posted on this webpage throughout calendar year 2015.
