Eight infrastructure grants totaling $6.7 million will be awarded to Wisconsin through the Safe Streets and Roads for All Grant Program.
Subsequently, as the level of fatality concentration in Brown County has reached above average traffic accidents and deaths, with 1.5 times as many road fatalities there as in the average county, Brown County was approved to be one of the recipients of the said federal funds to improve road safety.
Enumerating the communities that will get a cut of the federal funding coming to Wisconsin, WBAY reported:
• $4.4 million for Accessible Intersections for All (Milwaukee, WI): The City of Milwaukee will use this funding to address safety concerns for all road users, especially pedestrians, and cyclists. This award allows the City to implement improvements at 26 intersections along 5 corridors in their high-injury network. Project components include installing high visibility markings, upgrading traffic signal equipment, making intersections ADA-compliant, and realigning intersections.
