The topic was the I41 conversion. I41 is an important stretch of roadway used by 40% of the entire state’s traffic. After networking, attendees learned about the conversion from our speakers Tammy Rabe and Scot Harrington with the WisDOT. Because of this project, many more businesses will view the Wisconsin roadways as a key strength in site selection.
At the end of the presentations, the speakers took questions and comments about area buy in and the possibility of attracting an Amazon warehouse (not yet on the radar). This event was also attended by a large group of supply chain students from UW-Madison. Thanks to all for making this event a success!
