"They haven't contacted my office. I read about it in the news. So I'm disappointed," said Rep. Dean Kaufert, (R) Neenah.
D-O-T spokeswoman Peg Schmitt says, under it's 2013-2015 budget request, some projects in the "majors" program could be delayed. She says funding isn't there right now to start such projects on schedule. But township planners say delaying construction on 4-41 and the U-S 10 expansion further would compromise safety.
"As we continue to bump up our population around the region and funnel more and more people through that area. We've seen gridlock in that area. We see it more frequently now," said George Dearborn, Town of Menasha Director of Community Development .
Dearborn and Kaufert say delaying construction further would only further detour potential commercial and retail projects.
"There are companies, corporations and businesses that are looking for that full interchange to be done," Kaufert said.
"They look at specific criteria for justification of a project. If there's not a full interchange, they look at other locations," Dearborn added.
