MADISON (WKOW) — A group of Wisconsin Department of Transportation workers were honored on Wednesday at the State Capitol for their dedication and service to the community. Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch recognized the 30-year Anniversary of the Rest Area Maintenance Program.  Watch it on line – click here!

“We know that you guys do exactly what needs to be done every day to make sure that everyone’s safe,” said Kleefisch. “And that our rest areas are beautiful and that everyone has a really nice time and fond memories of our great state of Wisconsin, so thanks guys.”

The “RAM” program offers jobs to workers with disabilities to help them earn a paycheck and live independently.

17 million people stop at rest areas around Wisconsin every year. A recent survey revealed more than 95% of people reported cleanliness of restrooms as excellent or good.

The VIP Services Rest Area Maintenance (RAM) program provides facility maintenance for state-owned rest areas in Walworth and Rock County, as well as a Safety Weight Enforcement Facility in Dane County. VIP’s RAM crews also maintain the Genoa City Park and Ride site and the state welcome sign.  Congratulations RAM Crew!
