State Considering Next Step On Highway 23 Project

6/23/17 – If the State Highway 23 expansion project between Fond du Lac and Plymouth had gone ahead the improvement of that 19 mile stretch of road would be completed next year. As it is now the state is considering its next step after a Federal Appeals Court ruled against the state’s appeal to reinstate federal funding for the project. State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt says the three-judge panel ruled 2 to 1 against the state and the judge for the majority suggested the state do the project on its own. He says that’s not practical for legal and financial reasons.
