Title
Resolution authorizing the Commissioner of Public Works to execute a Project Agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for a project to reconstruct the northbound on-ramp to I-794 at South Carferry Drive, with preliminary engineering costs of $169,000 with a grantor share of $15,000 for state review and a City share of $154,000 for plan development, and with a total project cost of $845,000 with a grantor share of $265,000 and a City share of $580,000.

This resolution authorizes the Commissioner of Public Works to enter into an agreement with the WisDOT for this project.

Whereas, This project will allow the Port of Milwaukee to accept wind generation equipment that will potentially provide millions of dollars to the port and it’s terminal operators; and

Whereas, The WisDOT has prepared and submitted the attached Project Agreement for the cost sharing for this project; now, therefore, be it
