MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Eleven Wisconsin highway projects would be built sooner than expected, under a bill to be considered by the Assembly Tuesday.

The measure would spend $43 million from the projected billion-dollar surplus on the road projects.

The work would begin before the current fiscal year ends on June 30th, thus creating room for more projects in the following year.

The Assembly Transportation Committee endorsed the measure on a 13-2 vote last week.

Three Democrats joined all Republicans in supporting the speeded-up highway work. Two Democrats voted no.
