A Clark County community is getting a $140,000 transportation grant from the state, announced this week by Gov. Scott Walker.
The grant will help pay a portion of the $410,000 project to build a city street along with two intersection improvement for access to Dubay Biofuels’ new manufacturing facility. The remainder of the funds will be paid for by the city of Greenwood.
The company is building a $9.2 million plant that will convert a waste by-product of the cheese-making process into cattle feed and ethanol energy.
The new street, Greenway Boulevard, will extend 1,200 feet from Division Street to Begley Street. Intersection improvements will occur at each connecting street. Construction is scheduled to begin this spring and be completed in fall of 2013.
Greenwood is 15 miles north of Neillsville.
