WIS 50 is a vital connector link in the Corridors 2020 backbone
system. The highway is important to statewide mobility, commerce and
Due to extensive new development in the area, traffic on WIS 50
has exceeded normal growth trends. Traffic volume counts from 2002
show that 24,000 to 32,000 vehicles travel this stretch of highway daily.
Forecasted volumes for 2020 exceed 40,000 to 52,000 vehicles per day.
About 60 to 65 percent of the vehicles using this section of WIS 50 end
their trips within this corridor, making it an increasingly popular
destination. This accounts for the increased number of turning
movements at intersections and driveways.
This study has examined traffic techniques to improve the
highway's efficiency, including expansion, re-designing the signal
timing system, reviewing access and island locations, and conducting
traffic reviews at all intersections.
