WIS 26 Corridor - Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has completed
an EIS on 48 miles of WIS 26 between I-90 at Janesville and the WIS 60
East intersection north of Watertown.
The WIS 26 Corridor Study was initiated to determine how to best meet the
long-term transportation needs of this corridor. A preferred
alternative for the corridor has been selected that includes
improvement of the existing route to a four-lane highway as well as
bypasses of the cities of Milton, Jefferson and Watertown.
Public input on alternatives was solicited throughout the
duration of the project. Over 30 study committee meetings with
representatives of communities likely to be impacted were held to
discuss issues and findings from the study.
Selection of the preferred alternatives for WIS 26 was made after
evaluating engineering and environmental factors for the various
corridor alternatives, and careful consideration of comments from
various agencies, affected communities and property owners. The
results of the study process are documented in the Final
Funding for improvement of WIS 26 has been approved, and
construction of the route began in the Jefferson area in 2008.
