WI DOT Secretary talks travel in Chippewa Falls

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) Have you been running into some bumps in the roads? A meeting held in Chippewa Falls Thursday was designed to address those issues.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation's Secretary, Mark Gottlieb, hosted the event today as a part of his statewide tour called "Transportation Moves Wisconsin."

He says its an effort to talk about the importance of transportation for the state's economy, and get ideas on how to finance it in the future.

"There are unique issues with regards to transportation all around the state. Different businesses and different industries that are headquartered in different areas all have their own concerns, so it's great to be able to hear what they have to say so that as we plan and program for the future we can take those local needs into account," explains Gottlieb.

Gottlieb says meetings like this are important in order to stay a cost efficient, transparent, and accountable department.
