WIS 50 Reconstruction Project - Need/purpose

Why is this project needed?

WIS 50 has reached the end of its useful life and needs to be reconstructed. This means that all the layers of the highway will be completely replaced.

The proposed WIS 50 corridor improvements are needed to:

  • Address traffic congestion caused by volumes that exceed the roadway’s capacity
  • Reduce crash rates that are above state averages for similar highways
  • Balance the mobility of the corridor with access needs
  • Maintain an important state and local corridor that links economic centers
