Wisconsin study shows poor road conditions could hurt state's economy

WISCONSIN - A Wisconsin group thinks the state needs to fix its roads. The Local Government Institute of Wisconsin just released a study that gives the pavement on less than half of Wisconsin's highways a "good" grade.

The group argues that Wisconsin's fortunes are more closely tied to the quality transportation than those of some other states because many Wisconsinites work in the manufacturing, farming, or trucking industries. As a result, the Local Government Institute worries that poor road conditions could hurt the state's economy.

Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple sits on the Local Government Institute's board of directors.
