This past week our speaker was Franco Marcos from the Department of Transportation.  Franco gave an overview of some of the proposals for the major traffic ways near Sun Prairie, including Hwy 19.  They are currently gathering data about the usage of the highway and proposing changes to improve traffic flow and safety.  They are considering 15 intersections for improvements as adding traffic signals and signs and roundabouts in addition to other intersection improvements.  These are just evaluations as there is no immediate funding to make any current changes.  
Rotary moments:
  • Mark Olsen discussed ads for the Pancake Breakfast, scheduled for Sunday Feb 28 at the Knights of Columbus Roundtable.  You should have received your ad assignments.  See Mark if you have questions or other business' in mind to approach.
  • There will be a GRIT celebrations at Creekkside school on Wednesday, January 27 from 8:40 to 9:10 a.m.  Rotarians are invited to attend to recognize students who have achieved their goals.
