WIS 26 corridor EIS - Proposed access changes between Milton and Janesville
WIS 26 was upgraded to a four-lane highway between Janesville
and Milton in 1999. Currently, there are several private driveways
and side road access connections along this segment of the roadway.
Future traffic volumes and area growth indicate a long-term need to limit
and manage the number of access points along WIS 26 in order to
ensure that WIS 26 functions as an efficient long-distance route
between I-39/90 and US 151. Limiting access along the route is also
important for improving safety, especially as traffic volumes
grow. These changes would be made in the future as traffic
All communities on WIS 26 will benefit from having an efficient
and safe facility connecting them to I-39/90 and the Fox Valley.
Proposed changes include:
Closing the existing County Y intersection at WIS 26 and rerouting
County Y into a new intersection near McCormick Road.
Closing the existing Bingham Road intersection.
Creating a full diamond interchange at Harmony Town Hall Road.
Adding an overpass bridge connecting the east and west
segments of Town Line Road.
Adding an overpass bridge connecting Henke Road to St. Mary's Road.
Creating a frontage road on the north side of WIS 26 in order
to remove driveways directly accessing WIS 26.
