The public will have a chance to voice their concerns about the roads in Wisconsin.

An event called "Turnout for Transportation will take place in all 72 counties at the same time throughout the state of Wisconsin Thursday night. The meetings will be held at 7 p.m.

A broad group of people including construction workers, private businesses, and local agencies will gather to discuss a long-term solution for fixing Wisconsin roads.

Steve Dickinsen, Town Chair of Garfield, recently sent a letter to Governor Walker asking him to come up with a long-term plan for road reconstruction.

"A lot of frustration from the local folks. Why can't my road be paved? They come to Town Hall and ask when is it going to happen? And my answer is there is no plan for that to ever happen at this point, unless something changes drastically," said Dickinsen.

We reached out to Governor Walker's office for a response, but have not yet heard back.

The Eau Claire County meeting will be held Thursday, September 29th at the Eau Claire County Expo Center. The Chippewa County meeting will be at the Chippewa County Highway Department. Again, all meetings start at the same time, at 7 p.m.
