GREEN BAY (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Governor Scott Walker will be on hand this afternoon when the Green Bay Packers cut a ribbon for the latest improvements at Lambeau Field. 

The governor will speak along with Packers’ president Mark Murphy and community leaders. It will mark the official opening of 6,600 seats on two new decks in the South End Zone, as part of a $143-million renovation which took a year-and-a-half to complete. Those with seats in the two new levels can try them out, while Packer highlights are shown on the new video boards that were unveiled around this time last year.

The project also includes a new gate, suites, viewing platform, concessions, and sound system.

The team paid the entire cost of the renovation, partially with the help of a quarter-million new stockholders who became N-F-L team owners in late 2011 and early 2012.
