Wisconsin city receives TIGER II grant to begin work on downtown intermodal terminal


The city of Madison, Wis., received a $950,000 Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) II grant to conduct planning and conceptual design activities for a downtown intermodal terminal and surrounding areas.

The $2.25 million project includes the creation of a development plan, and architectural and engineering work for the intermodal terminal and a two-block mixed-use redevelopment site that would be integrated with the facility. Work includes examining the Madison Public Market and other retail areas, replacing an aging parking structure, building a bike station, and improving links to transportation modes, a hotel and the convention center.

The intermodal terminal would serve the proposed high-speed rail line between Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison and the Twin Cities.
