June 6, 2018

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement regarding the announcement of a $160 million federal grant for the completion of the I-94 North-South project. According to the governor’s office, this is the largest Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant received by Wisconsin and the second largest grant from USDOT this year.

“The announcement of this grant is outstanding news for Racine County, southeast Wisconsin and the entire state. The economic growth in this region is about to explode and we must have a safe and reliable roadway. I applaud Governor Walker for fighting for this federal assistance and moving up the completion date by eleven years. 

“I would like to thank President Trump for providing this grant to help complete this essential highway project, which I have long supported. I appreciate that this administration realizes that investing in infrastructure is a key component to economic development and long-term prosperity.”
