Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch says Governor Walker is making sure Wisconsin has safe and dependable roadways.

She made those comments while at the annual Manufacturing Advantage Conference and Technology Showcase at UW-Stout Thursday.

She was talking about the "Turnout for Transportation" events where construction workers, residents, private businesses, and local agencies will gather to discuss a long-term plan for road construction.

Kleefisch says you can expect to hear about financing for safer roads when Gov. Walker presents his next budget early next year.

"The Governor has already said that he is going to invest to make sure our municupalities and counties see the type of aide they need and make sure we have safe roadways and dependable infrastructure in order to grow industry but also to protect the drivers in the future," explains Kleefisch.

"Turnout for Transportation" events are taking place in all of Wisconsin's 72 counties Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
