9-18-13 fdl county board approves hwy 23 resolution

The Fond du lac County Board is on record in support of the Highway 23 expansion project in Fond du lac and Sheboygan counties.  The board voted Tuesday night in favor of a resolution supporting the state DOT’s  proposal to design and construct a four lane highway between Plymouth and Fond du Lac.  The DOT recently announced the project start date had been restored to 2015…after it had earlier been pushed back to 2018.  County executive Al Buechel says he think the group that has filed a lawsuit to halt the project is trying to delay it as long as they can so the DOT will give up in frustration.  But Buechel says at this point he thinks there is a very good chance the project will start in 2015.  Buechel also questions statistics from the group 1000 Friends of Wisconsin that shows a significant drop in motor vehicle traffic on Highway 23 going back to 2004.
