MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law a bill that increases spending on highway projects this year by $43 million.

 

 

 

The bill Walker signed Wednesday in Pewaukee accelerates spending on 11 projects around the state thanks to an $83 million surplus in the transportation fund.

 

 

 

The projects include maintenance, road resurfacing, pavement replacement and bridge rehabilitation.

 

 

 

The projects are in Brown, Calumet, Door, Douglas, Langlade, Lincoln, Monroe, Outagamie, Sauk, Taylor and Walworth counties.

 

 

 

The bill unanimously passed the Legislature.
