Support for Business Program Participant Guidebook
The Support for Business Program Participant Guidebook explains the components of the program, including community collaboration, continuous communication and information sharing, and business assistance organizations. The goal is to help minimize the adverse impacts to local businesses during roadway and bridge construction projects.
The guidebook provides information on how the SFB Community Liaison can assist businesses by offering suggestions on what to do during the construction project, and providing a Key Contact Information list. The list contains names, email addresses, telephone numbers and websites for Department of Public Works and Wisconsin Department of Transportation staff. It also lists organizations that can provide valuable business assistance.
Support for Business Program Testimonial Video
The SFB Program produced a video that features testimonials from businesspeople whose organizations were located adjacent to past DPW construction projects. Business owners located in future construction project areas are encouraged to watch the video to learn more about how the SFB program helped others, and how the program can provide them assistance for upcoming projects.
“Open for Business” Signage
The SFB Program has produced project-specific “Open for Business” signs that inform customers that neighborhood businesses are open to serve them.
The SFB Program has also created directional signage to help traffic flow and inform customers of parking availability.
