To help with the development of the state's long-range transportation plan, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation surveyed residents about their top transportation priorities."When asked to make trade-offs between transportation projects, residents said it was better to repave some highways than expand others; better to expand an existing road than build a new one; better to cut the cost of a road project than to reduce inconvenience during construction; and better to focus on roads that need work instead of spreading projects around the state."They were almost evenly split, however, on whether it was better to provide more options for people who can't drive or to make things easier for drivers, and on whether it was better to enhance the environment or hold down transportation spending."
