Measure Supported by Manufactured Housing Industry

Updating a story posted Feb. 26, 2014 regarding the building of roundabouts in Wisconsin, Rep. David Craig (R-Big Bend) sponsored legislation, supported by the manufactured housing industry, that would give final say over traffic circles to local municipalities. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation wants to decide where they should be built, because studies show they reduce serious injuries by 38 percent, according to Amy Bliss of the Wisconsin Housing Alliance says some loads are 16 feet wide and 80 feet long, and although there is an apron lane that allows for larger vehicles, trucks hauling manufactured and modular homes have trouble negotiating the curves. Bliss says, “I’m not really here to discuss whether local control is good or not. But these roundabouts are popping up like dandelions in the springtime and I would like something that would slow them down.” knows Bliss had said earlier sometimes the drivers have to take longer routes which raises the cost of delivery.##
