Nucor Partners with Madison Riverfront Development Committee on Super Overlook Project
Madison, Indiana, August 23, 2022
Nucor Corporation announced their support to the Madison, Indiana Riverfront Super Overlook project today by committing to provide the steel required for the project’s construction. Nucor, North America’s largest steel producer and largest recycler, operates a tubular products facility in Madison.
The Riverfront Development Committee acknowledges Nucor’s dedication to the community and thanks them for their investment in the City of Madison, Jefferson County, and the riverfront. This project will continue to transform the already stunning 1.5-mile riverfront walkway into an accessible and inviting destination for residents, tourists, and businesses. Using Nucor’s scrap-based recycled steel in its construction will also allow the project to be built in the most sustainable way possible.
“Nucor is proud to partner with the community on this exciting project,” said Nicki Taylor, General Manager of Nucor Tubular Products. “Madison isn’t just a place where our Nucor teammates come to work every day, but we also live here, shop here and send our children to school here. This project will be something we can all be proud of.”
