Governor awards $1.1 million to Fitchburg

Gov. Scott Walker awarded a Transportation Economic Assistance (TEA) grant to the city of Fitchburg so it can extend Commerce Park Drive southward to what will be an east-west roadway named Sub-Zero Parkway.

The expanded roadway will terminate at the Badger State Trail. Bud’s Drive will also be reconfigured, according to a release.

Sub-Zero’s planned expansion in the area is expected to generate about 300 new jobs.
