Wisconsin DOT Report: Tolling Could Generate Billions While Gov. Walker’s Plan Would Make Matters Worse

LaCrosse Tribune reports, “Tolling Wisconsin’s U.S. interstates could raise billions for the state’s most-traveled thoroughfares, but the cost would be borne by motorists, big upfront investments would be needed and it’s unclear if the state could get the federal approval it would require, a new state Department of Transportation study [link added] finds. The study also finds Gov. Scott Walker’s road-funding plan for the next two years, which holds the line on taxes and fees, puts Wisconsin roads on course to worsen ‘severely’ over the next decade.” (And, shockingly, the man in charge of that report has resigned . . . see next item.)
