City of Beaver Dam Nearing Completion of Infrastructure for New Business Park

(Beaver Dam) The city of Beaver Dam has nearly completed the infrastructure work in a 100-acre expansion of its business park. That’s according to Mike Laue (lauw) with MSA Professional Services, who says sewer and water lines have been installed and site grading has been completed. Laue told the city’s Operations Committee last night that the final piece of infrastructure, street lighting along Commercial Drive – the main access point from Highway 33 – will be completed by the end of this month. The 100 acres is an expansion of the existing business park that already houses such company’s as Richelieu Foods, WMFB and Apache Stainless Steel. It is bordered by Industrial Drive and Highway 33 and is where Mayville Engineering Company is building their new expansion, which is the first, and so far only, business in the new portion of the business park. Approximately 70 acres remain. Beaver Dam Mayor Tom Kennedy told aldermen last night that the next step will be to work with the state Department of Transportation to reduce the speed limit on Highway 33, along the northern edge of the business park, from 45mph to 35mph.
