Madison Beltline, Wisconsin

State officials are currently investigating a possible $1 billion project to widen the Madison Beltline in Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, the state of Wisconsin is in the midst of a funding crisis, with other major projects and renovations being delayed due to lack of funds. Wisconsin has also underfunded public transportation – an especially attractive alternative in the Madison area, where transit ridership increased by 24 percent between 2005 and 2015.
