If you're driving through Marshfield, it's hard not to notice the construction sites popping up around the city. The addition of the Veterans Memorial Parkway will add to a booming economy.

"It's bringing the major traffic crossing right in the heart of our downtown it will be the gateway for vehicles and visitors to come visit our business corridor," says Barb Fleisner, Marshfield Chamber of Commerce.

Wisconsin highway 13 will no longer be marked through the downtown business district that will improve pedestrian and traffic flow to that area. The project is expected to help manufacturers transport goods more effectively while drawing attention from out-of-towners.
