A Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission committee will meet Friday morning to consider three projects for funding. They are:
- Reconstruction with additional traffic lanes of CTH Q between USH 41 and Pilgrim Road in Washington County—$3,500,000
- Reconstruction with additional traffic lanes of CTH Y between CTH Q and STH 175 in Washington County—$3,658,000
- Bridge rehabilitation of River Road bridge (1.2 Miles North of CTH P) over Indian CreekRiver in the Village of River Hills—$307,734
These selections, advanced to SEWRPC by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, seems to totally ignore federal direction that priority be given to projects in economically distressed areas.
What a travesty.
The SEWRPC committee will meet to discuss this at 9:30 a.m. Friday in the Milwaukee County Downtown Transit Center Harbor Lights Room, 909 E. Michigan St.
