PEWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker signed a bill Wednesday that speeds up eleven highway projects planned around the state.

At a ceremony in Pewaukee, the Republican Walker approved $43 million in the current fiscal year for a host of highway maintenance and resurfacing, plus bridge rehab work. The new funding represents just over half of a projected $83 million surplus in the state's transportation fund.

Lawmakers from both parties endorsed the earlier spending for projects in Brown, Outagamie, Door, Calumet, Langlade, Lincoln, Douglas, Taylor, Monroe, Sauk, and Walworth counties.
