“…all modes of transportation in Wisconsin – buses, highways, bicycles, harbors, etc. – are subsidized through the state’s $6.8 billion transportation fund. And to put the cost of new highways in perspective, adding one lane to Interstate 94 between Milwaukee and the Illinois line is costing $1.9 billion – twice the cost of the rail line.”
