What is the Roadside Facilities Program?

Wisconsin's Rest Area Maintenance (RAM) Program has been in existence since 1987. The Program consists of 307 roadside sites in 35 counties in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) owns these sites and acts as the program administrator. WisDOT contracts with Disability Service Provider Network (DSPN) to provide program management services. WisDOT also contracts with 22 Community Rehabilitation Programs (CRPs) to provide the custodial care and landscape maintenance services at these roadside sites. For more information about the program, click here.
