Look out, Minnesota drivers: Wisconsin study sees billions of dollars in turning interstates into tollways
MADISON, Wis. — A new state transportation study found that installing tollways on Wisconsin interstates could raise billions of dollars, but that substantial upfront investments would be needed and federal approval is uncertain.
The Department of Transportation study also found that Gov. Scott Walker's road-funding plan for the next two years puts Wisconsin roads on path to worsen "severely" over the next decade, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.
Wisconsin lawmakers and Walker commissioned the study last year as part of the 2015-17 state budget. Its findings were released Wednesday.
