Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) announced Wisconsin will receive $8 million in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding for a project she supported to upgrade a rest area along I-90 near Sparta with a new facility, expanded truck parking, and updated infrastructure.
“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is delivering for Wisconsin communities in every corner of the state, including making long overdue upgrades for the infrastructure drivers depend on. The I-90 corridor keeps Wisconsin families, businesses, and commerce moving forward, and it’s critical we invest in the waypoints that keep our roads safe,” said Senator Baldwin. “An upgraded rest stop near Sparta will improve safety, accessibility, and capacity for the truckers, travelers, and commuters who rely on I-90, and I am proud to bring home this investment.”
The project will reconstruct a 55-year-old Safety Rest Area located near Sparta, WI. This project will expand commercial motor vehicle parking from 16 to approximately 70 spots, replace deteriorated ramps and pavement, and construct a new modernized facility including ADA-compliant restrooms. In addition to supporting the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Senator Baldwin called on the Biden Administration to fund this project.
