On March 4, 2020, all recipients were publicly announced of the Multimodal Local Supplement (MLS) grant award. https://wisconsindot.gov/Documents/doing-bus/local-gov/astnce-pgms/aid/mls-awards.pdf
The Town of Oshkosh is grateful to be one of the recipients selected. In November 2019, the town applied for an estimated 1-mile Vinland Street project that is in desperate need of road repairs that will improve the economic value in that area for commuters to businesses and between schools.
“The program was designed to allow communities to prioritize their transportation needs and submit projects ranging from roads and bridges, to harbors and railroads, to transit equipment and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.”
