Update: We followed up on the Burger King sale to see if it was involved with the I-94 expansion project that's underway. Emlynn Grisar, of WisDOT, said it wasn't. The state doesn't need to buy the Burger King to make way for the wider interstate, she said.
Grisar also noted construction work at Highway 20 and I-94 isn't scheduled to begin until 2014.
