Road Construction Communication & Signage
Signage Update from the WisDOT:
WisDOT SW region traffic section reviewed the current detour signing. They suggested that we revise the signing slightly on US 12 and IH 39. The message changes a bit and adds the word “Waunakee”. The signs are also moved onto two separate posts to help space out the messages for better comprehension.
All Village postal customers have received a 4-page newsletter construction guide.
· All businesses will be provided tear-off detour map pads
· About 20 large scale signs will be placed along the DOT's posted detour with the message: "Waunakee Businesses Open & Accessible", along with the Together Waunakee, Paving the Way official logo.
· In May, all businesses will be given a free yard sign that will say "Open For Business" and include the official Paving the Way Logo. This sign should be placed in front of your business. Intent is to show business unification throughout the Village.
· There will be directional signage along the local alternate detour routes designed to most effectively and safely move traffic E-W & N-S around project area
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR BUSINESSES:
· Communicate with your customers, vendors and other service provider by giving suggestions on how to best access your business! Phone calls, email, mailers, social media, and website notices are a good way to accomplish this.
· Please avoid using additional signage. Sticking to our open for business message uniformly will be most effective for everyone.
The Waunakee Chamber of Commerce is here to serve our members as a business and community resource hub and to help in any way we can. For the most up to date road construction information go to www.togetherwaunakee.com.

WaunaBucks is a Gift Certificate Program brought to you by the Waunakee Area Chamber of Commerce. These certificates can only be spent at Chamber Member Businesses, which means you are ensuring that those using them are shopping locally.
By choosing to shop local you help the Waunakee Community in a variety of ways:
· Your money stays in Waunakee and those who run those businesses;
· The money spent helps to pay employees and utilizes goods and services in our area to help grow the tax base;
· And did you know that local businesses are known to donate more to local charities than non-local businesses? Yes, it’s true!
Please make an extra effort to shop local businesses. With your support, businesses will be able to continue to offer you the products and services you need for years to come.
Where you shop matters and has a lasting impact on the economic vitality of the Waunakee/Westport Area!
A complete listing of all Chamber businesses can be found on the website and the 2014 Chamber Community Guide & Directory.
A lead committee and group of work teams have initiated the effort and are planning for action during the next twelve months. www.togetherwaunakee.com has been created and will be the place to go for project information and updates.
