MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County will receive federal stimulus funding for a pair of significant highway improvement projects.
University Avenue (County Highway MS) between Segoe Road and Shorewood Boulevard and County Highway K between County Highways M and Q in the Town of Westport will be upgraded in 2010 through dollars the county has secured under the Federal Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
$600,000 in stimulus funding will pay for the repaving and improvements on Highway K. The pavement on University Avenue will be replaced, upgrading a significant stretch of the busy thoroughfare. That estimated $3-million project will also be fully funded by stimulus dollars.
This latest round of highway funding is in addition to more than $1.7 million in stimulus the county secured earlier this year for bridge improvement projects that will begin this month on Highway B in Rockdale and Highway N in Dunkirk.
