Foxconn: The Roads to Nowhere
Pay-as-you-go is another lie from proponents of Foxconn. Much has been paid, while the going is to nowhere. Ricardo Torres reports Taxpayers have spent more than $225 million on roads around Foxconn:
Between work done on Interstate 94 in Racine County and the local roads and state highways in the Foxconn area, roughly $225 million has been spend [sic] as of the end of January.
And there still is roughly $155.2 million worth of work remaining on local roads and $167.1 million worth of work remaining on Interstate 94.
