Transportation grant in Rhinelander

RHINELANDER (WAOW) -

A transportation grant will help keep jobs at a Rhinelander business.

The governor's office announced a $425,000 grant.

The grant helps pay for reconstruction of Wisconsin 17.

That project is designed to improve traffic flow and access to Printpack.

The company makes packing materials.

It's building a $72 million dollar facility in Rhinelander.

State leaders say the grant will help keep more than 130 jobs in the city.

Construction is expected to be finished by the end of this month.
