US 41 corridor study north of Green Bay completed
May 6, 2013
Corridor determined adequate to meet demands through 2035
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay has announced the findings regarding a multi-year corridor study of US 41 in Brown County from north of County M (Lineville Road) in the village of Suamico to the US 41/141 interchange in the town of Abrams, Oconto County. The study concluded in April 2013.
The study evaluated interchanges, adjacent frontage roads, traffic capacity, safety and operations along this section of the US 41 corridor. It considered what improvements would be needed for this highway to operate effectively through 2035.
The findings were very positive and indicated that based on available traffic data within the study limits, the current stretch of US 41 north of Green Bay will continue to operate at an acceptable level to the year 2035. As a result of the study, no capacity expansion (adding of travel lanes) is recommended at this time.
WisDOT reported these findings at a meeting with local officials and other stakeholders at the Suamico Village Hall on Wednesday, April 17.
The department encourages local units of government to continue partnering with WisDOT in maintaining acceptable US 41 operations and requested local officials consider coordinating with WisDOT’s NE Region early in the process to discuss development plans near or at the US 41 interchanges within the study area.
