On Thursday July 28 Governor Tony Evers paid a visit to Richland Center as part of his “Pothole Patrol” tour which included seven stops across the state to repair potholes and discuss the governor’s investments in local roads and highways. Evers repaired potholes on E. 2nd Street between N. Cedar Street and Chestnut Street with City Administrator Ashley Oliphant, Mayor Todd Coppernool, Richland County Highway Commissioner Josh Elder and the Richland Center Public Works Department. Since 2019, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the Evers Administration has improved more than 4,600 miles of highways and roads including more than 1,700 miles of locally-owned roads across the state. “It was great to be out fixing the darn roads to continue our work improving more than 4,600 miles of highways and locally-owned roads in Wisconsin,” said Gov. Evers.
