UW Credit Union, whose headquarters offices, 3500 University Ave., are shown here, plans to open its second branch in Fitchburg in 2019.

UW Credit Union plans to build a branch in Fitchburg on a site next to 2875 Fish Hatchery Road.

It will be the Madison credit union's second Fitchburg location. The other, at 6331 McKee Road near the Target store, opened in 2009.

If approved by city officials in Fitchburg, the new UW Credit Union branch will open in the summer of 2019.

Founded in 1931, UW Credit Union has $2.56 billion in assets, 25 branches across Wisconsin and 515 employees.
