Wisconsin delays work on 5 major road projects


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin transportation officials are delaying work on five major road projects because the state budget didn't lay out enough money for them.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports in its online edition Tuesday That the stalled projects include reconstructing Highway 10/441 in the Fox Valley; expanding Interstate 39/90 from Madison to Illinois; reconstructing the Verona Road Interchange in Madison; reconstructing Highway 15 near New London; and completing long-running work on Highway 23 between Fond du Lac and Sheboygan.

Gov. Scott Walker wanted to borrow $1.3 billion for roads, but Republican lawmakers said that was too much and scaled the borrowing back to $500 million in the state budget.
