Little-used Wisconsin bridges get federal stimulus dollars

Ben Poston and Tom Held of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found that a vast majority of the Wisconsin bridges awarded $15.8 million of construction money in the first wave of federal stimulus funding carry fewer than 1,000 vehicles a day. A dozen of those get less than 100 cars a day. For the story, Poston mined National Bridge Inventory data available at the NICAR database library. This article is part of the the Journal Sentinel's Following The Money coverage of how stimulus funds are being spent in Wisconsin.
