Pointed out years agoWisconsin’s planning docket is awash with dubious and expensive highway projects that make the state’s annual operating costs for the foregone rail project look like chump change. James Rowen at Network blog the Political Environment brings us a sampling of the kind of projects that seemed to have evaded the fiscal scrutiny the rail proposal received.
