Wisconsin gets 2nd part of high-speed rail money

The state of Wisconsin has received another portion of the $810 million in federal stimulus money that will go toward building a high-speed rail line between Madison and Milwaukee.

Gov. Jim Doyle and U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced the $46.5 million in funding on Thursday in Watertown. The state previously received a $5.7 million payment.

The governor says more than 5,500 people will be put to work building the rail line and constructing new stations along the route, including one in Watertown.

Construction of the rail line is expected to begin later this year. It's expected to be done in 2013.

Republican candidates for governor have said they oppose the project and would stop the work if elected. Doyle says that's unrealistic.
