MADISON — A bipartisan commission charged with making recommendations on what major Wisconsin road projects should move forward is scheduled to meet for the first time in half a decade.

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers called the meeting of the Transportation Projects Commission on Friday to receive updates about ongoing projects under environmental study and those recommended for construction.

The commission was created in 1983 and has met irregularly in recent years.

It was dormant between 2002 and 2010, before then-Gov. Scott Walker revived it for two meetings in 2011 before it went on another hiatus after a December 2014 meeting.
