Proposal Could Be Game Changer For Road Projects

Antigo, WI, United States /

If it came to fruition, it could change the way you see road projects done in Langlade County and around the state. Road builders could pay their workers less and state transportation officials would face more scrutiny under a bill that a group of Republican legislators began circulating for sponsorship Thursday.
The measure comes in response to a critical state audit of the Department of Transportation earlier this year. The review found that the agency had been underestimating the cost of highway projects by millions of dollars and that Wisconsin’s roads are in worse shape than roads in six other Midwestern states. Republicans are grappling with how to close a $1 billion shortfall in the state’s transportation fund.
