MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has announced additional road project delays caused by a lack of funding.

The department this week notified state lawmakers that it was delaying work on smaller scale projects over the next six years. This comes after it announced delays on five major projects, caused by the Legislature not approving additional borrowing to pay for them.

Gov. Scott Walker told Assembly Republicans earlier this week he wanted to work with them to borrow more money to pay for the work. The budget allows for up to $350 million in borrowing over the next two years.

Walker said Thursday he thought some of the delayed projects could be paid for with at least $150 million in borrowing this year.
