Wisconsin Railroad Wants $160K for High-Speed Rail Work

Wisconsin Railroad Wants $160K for High-Speed Rail Work : A Milwaukee-based railroad says the state owes it $160,000 for work it performed on a high-speed line Republican Gov. Scott Walker nixed when he took office.

Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Vice President of Finance Timothy Karp told the state claims board Friday the railroad began negotiating with Amtrak in 2010 about sharing tracks for a high-speed passenger line between Madison and Milwaukee.

Karp says the railroad began the work without a contract because then-Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle’s administration wanted to get moving as quickly as possible with the November 2011 election looming. He says the state offered repeated verbal promises to reimburse the railroad, though.

Walker won the governor’s office in the 2011 election and killed the project. Karp says the railroad is still looking for its money.
