Wisconsin new motto: stay put
The Reason Foundation is out with it’s latest report on state highways, and the MacIver Institute has some analysis. The good news it that Wisconsin does not totally suck. The bad news, we’re getting worse.
How did Wisconsin fare?
At first blush, we appear to be in the middle of the pack. We rank 21st in efficiency and cost effectiveness.
But note, we fell considerably between 2000 and 2007. Yet another ranking where we are headed in the wrong direction.
Moreover, we are one of only ten states whose highways are worsening despite the state spending more than the national average on its roads.
With the continuing raids on the transportation fund and the emergency (and temporary) patch work of the zoo interchange, expect Wisconsin’s rankings to plunge even further when Reason conducts their next report in 2010.
