Frustrations came to a head last week as local government leaders shared woes of crumbling roads and delayed highway projects, and urged state lawmakers to find sustainable funding for fixing and building Wisconsin roads.

Organizers of the Turnout for Transportation meetings held throughout the state last Thursday, Sept. 29, said their goal was a unified call for lawmakers to end the transportation funding stalemate. Gov. Scott Walker said he will not raise gas taxes and vehicle registration fees to bring in more revenue and Republican lawmakers will not allow increase borrowing to pay for road projects.
