(Madison, Wis.) – Ken Mika, PE M.ASCE, Co-Chair of the Wisconsin Report Card and Advocacy efforts issued the following statement after Gov. Evers announced $149 million in state funding for local roads:

“We applaud the $149 million in funding for local road projects which will benefit hundreds of road projects across the state of Wisconsin. Our state’s roads were given a “D+” in our 2020 ASCE Wisconsin Section Report Card because of aging roads. While this funding is another great step forward to improving Wisconsin’s roads, a long-term funding solution must be found for Wisconsin’s aging infrastructure.”
