Greendale and Greenfield will benefit from several road improvements to be completed with federal stimulus funding.
Members of a regional transportation advisory committee decided this week how to allocate the $38.7 million coming to the greater Milwaukee area.
Greendale and Greenfield will receive about $326,000 for a joint project repairing 51st Street between Grange Avenue and Loomis Road, Village Manager Todd Michaels said today.
The two communities are the only Milwaukee County suburbs besides West Allis and Wauwatosa to receive stimulus funding, Michaels said.
In addition, Greendale residents will also benefit from two county-led projects, he said. About $1 million has been allocated for reconstruction of a county bridge running between Loomis Road and 76th Street, in Root River Parkway, and about $1.6 million for the repair of College Avenue between 51st Street and Loomis Road.
"It's very good for us," Michaels said. "We didn't think we would get anything, so it shows that it doesn't hurt to try."
Many projects receiving federal stimulus funding will not begin until 2010.
