Project overview

WIS 21 is an important state highway serving the local economy and linking major population and economic centers.

In order to maintain a safe and efficient transportation system, WisDOT is working with local jurisdictions to develop a long-range plan for WIS 21. The plan will include:

  • Designation of WIS 21 as a future expressway under State Statute 84.295
  • Preliminary plans showing the proposed expressway design that includes intersections
  • An official map to preserve the land required to convert WIS 21 to an expressway

No construction is currently scheduled. There is no timeline proposed for physical conversion of the highway to expressway following the recording of formal designation and official mapping . The department will continue to monitor the WIS 21 corridors safety and traffic operations referring to the corridor management plan for future mid-term and long term improvements.
