Chart of the Day – Biennial Transportation Fund-Supported Bond Authorization

April 30, 2013

[Madison, Wisc…] Governor Scott Walker’s 2013-2015 budget proposes $794.2 million in bonding authority to be used for major transportation projects during the biennium. While this is an increase over the 2011-2013 budget, it is still over $165 million less than Governor Jim Doyle’s last budget. Projects covered under bonding include major highway development across the state, and larger projects like construction on the Zoo Interchange and Hoan Bridge in Milwaukee.
