Finally, A Modest Plan To Balance Transit And Highway Spending In Waukesha

This blog has reported repeatedly about the plan to spend more than $23 million in public funds on an interstate interchange to an upscale shopping mall in Waukesha - - without transit expansion in a transit-starved region.

It's a more-than symbolic omission, and now a group of transit advocates is trying to get officials to fix it.

How those officials respond is going to say a lot about efforts to make transportation spending a little more balanced in our region, especially since the transit need is crucial now, and the mall, once-delayed, has not yet been built.
