Surface Transportation Program - Freight

The Surface Transportation Program Ė Freight (STP-Freight) initiative allocates federal funds over two years to complete projects that improve freight connections. STP-Freight is a new pilot initiative that grew out of the Governorís Second Annual Freight Summit.

STP-Freight rating criteria focused on projects associated with multimodal and intermodal facilities, 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 were able to be completed quickly (preferably within two years) received priority in the rating process.

Governor Scott Walker announced the approval of the Wisconsin Department of Transportationís STP-Freight Pilot on September 17, 2013. Seven projects totaling $9.5 million have been approved and are provided in the STP-Freight Approved Project List.
