State wants to delay reconstruction of busiest interchange


MADISON (WKOW) -- State officials want to delay reconstruction on the busiest interchange in Wisconsin, the Zoo Interchange in Milwaukee.

The idea comes from Gov. Scott Walker's Department of Transportation, after years of Walker criticizing his predecessor for not prioritizing work on the interchange.

It was detailed in a budget request released this month.

Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb said a delay for completion of the overall project from 2018 to 2020 is necessary if more money isn't put toward roads.

Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie did not say whether Walker would agree to the delay, but noted the budget request is just the starting point for discussion on the issue.
