Scope of the study has changed to focus on alternatives on west
side of Janesville. Alternatives east of Janesville will be studied at
a later date following completion of west section Environmental Impact
WisDOT is studying ways to improve mobility, access and safety on

US 14/WIS 11 corridor provides important regional connections
throughout southern Wisconsin and also functions as a critical link
between Janesville, in Rock County, and Darien, in Walworth County. The
corridor is heavily traveled by commuter, residential, commercial
and recreational traffic.
Area growth, increasing traffic volumes and crash rates, and public interest
contributed to the need to study potential corridor improvements to ensure continued years of service.
Major outcomes of the study will be completion of an
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision (ROD),
Understanding of how the highway serves local residents and
through traffic, both now and in the future.
Full range of improvement alternatives developed with public
participation that meet the local and regional transportation
needs of the corridor.
Evaluation of improvement alternatives that recommends a
