Project overview (printable version)

Project location

Segment 2 consists of relocating WIS 59 approximately 0.25 miles south of its present location to provide space for the construction of an interchange with the WIS 26 bypass around the east side of the city of Milton, in Rock County

Project overview

Improvements start at the current WIS 26 and St. Mary intersection and extend east back to existing WIS 59 just prior to the Vickerman Road intersection.

The new WIS 59 will have one lane in each direction with a median to provide room for turn lanes at intersections and the future WIS 26 interchange. Sufficient real estate will be purchased at this time for future expansion of WIS 59 to a four-lane facility. An existing segment of County M will be realigned starting at Town Line Road and extending north to the newly relocated WIS 59. County M will then run west with WIS 59.

A railroad spur crosses proposed WIS 59 and will require grade separation bridges. WIS 59 will go over the railroad.

Roundabouts will be constructed at the WIS 26 interchange ramp connections to WIS 59 at the new County M intersection.


The section of existing WIS 59 will be jurisdictionally transferred to local government when the new WIS 59 is opened to traffic.

The construction cost was $7.9 million.

Status/Phase

Completed in 2009
