MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Jim Doyle and U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood say they’ll make a major announcement in Watertown on Thursday about the state’s planned high-speed rail line.
Doyle and LaHood will be joined by Watertown Mayor Ron Krueger and other officials at Watertown City Hall for a 10 a.m. news conference.
Wisconsin has been awarded $810 million in federal stimulus money to build a high-speed rail line between Madison and Milwaukee.
Watertown will be one of the stops along the route, and a rail station is expected to be built there.
