Walker approves $9.5 million in awards for new freight program
MADISON (WITI) — Governor Scott Walker announced seven awards totaling $9,506,872 through the Surface Transportation Program – Freight (STP – Freight), which is funded through federal dollars. This two year pilot program was created following the Governor’s Second Annual Freight Summit held in November 2012.
STP – Freight rating criteria focus on projects associated with multimodal and intermodal facilities or warehousing and distribution centers; projects that improve local freight connections to the state highway network; and projects that provide many-to-one and one-to-many connections. Projects that are able to be completed quickly (preferably within two years) received priority in the rating process.
