I-94 Flood Repair At Johnson Creek Is Best Use of WisDOT

Dealing with the transportation crisis on flooded I-94 lanes between Milwaukee and Madison to allow traffic again to pass through that critical area is exactly what transportation dollars and skills are for.

WisDOT Secretary Frank Busalacchi ordered the emergency fix.

Fixing and maintaining the massive road system we already have should be the department's highest priority - - not adding new lanes at skyrocketing prices to relieve phantom congestion between south Milwaukee and the Illinois line.

Instead of Build It Now, the WisDOT practice and taxpayer demand should be Fix It First, as 1000 Friends of Wisconsin and others have long argued.
