Funding concerns linger on I-90/39 work
JANESVILLE--While the fine print in Gov. Scott Walker’s budget won’t be known until tonight, supporters of widening Interstate 90/39 are confident the governor’s budget will adequately fund the project until 2015.
But those same supporters are more concerned about the state’s 2015-17 budget, the transportation portion of which is expected to pay for a substantial portion of the project that would widen the Interstate to three or four lanes in each direction between the state line and the Beltline in Madison.
“That’s when most of the real work will be done,” said Sen. Tim Cullen, D-Janesville.
How much money Walker will target for the project in the next two years is unknown.
