Wisconsin's Generic Headline

Another win for the government/road-builders' complex:

Update: Major delays expected on I-39/90/94 for emergency pavement repairs

Seriously? Going after emergency repairs? So if we do anything other than let roads crumble it's a "win for the government/road builders' complex"?

Planned obsolescence?

Or "s--t happens", perhaps?

Planned obsolescence being that we built these roads 50 years ago and have been negligent in maintaining them. There's not some grand conspiracy out there.

Or so you would have us believe.

Not even half that.

Do we know this is repairing 50-year-old pavement?

It was built in the 80' and 90's.

And it probably wasn't properly maintained because road maintenance gets a bipartisan back seat relative to new highways and expansions.
