Governor shows support for Rock County highway project

A funding shortfall could delay the expansion of Interstate 39/90 in Rock County, but Governor Scott Walker tells Gazette reporter Jim Leute he's confidant his next budget will include new revenues to keep the project on schedule.  Department of Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb recently said a budget shortfall made it "very plausible" the highway expansion project in Rock County could be delayed.   The governor offered the comments Tuesday during a break at a meeting of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation at Grainger in Janesville.
