MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill designating portions of southern Wisconsin highways the Frank Lloyd Wright Trail.

The trail runs through Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Dane, Iowa, Sauk and Richland counties. The state Department of Transportation will use $50,000 from the Department of Tourism to build signs along the trail directing travelers to specific Wright attractions.

Walker signed the bill Monday at Taliesin, Wright’s Spring Green estate.

Wright was born in 1867 in Richland Center. He was considered one of the most influential architects of the first half of the 20th century.
