With the concerns over long-term transportation funding in the state remaining an issue, advocates for improving the roads for the benefit of the commercial business as well as the general public are speaking out. Craig Thompson, executive director of the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin, shares what he believes is the near-long term solution.
Thompson says that Wisconsin has the second most transportation-dependent economy in the country behind only Indiana. He says Door and Kewaunee Counties has uniquely important transportation challenges.
Thompson advises the state to take a much broader approach to the transportation funding shortfall and road improvements than a using what he calls, a “band-aid” solution.
