Project location

  • Segment A - Green Bay St., south to the separation of US 14 with WIS 35

Project overview

WisDOT, in cooperation with the La Crosse Area Planning Committee (LAPC), city of La Crosse and town of Shelby, studied South Ave./Mormon Coulee Rd. (US 14/61/WIS 35) to identify a long-term vision for the future of this heavily-traveled route.

The section of South Ave./Mormon Coulee Rd. studied extended from junction with Green Bay St. (by Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center) to intersection of US 14/61/WIS 35.

Two rural highway segments were also examined:

  • WIS 35, from US 14/61/WIS 35 intersection to La Crosse County line (near Goose Island).
  • US 14/61, from US 14/61/WIS 35 intersection to junction with County M (near Ten Mile Hill).

Timing for potential four-lane construction on the rural segments was examined using updated traffic counts and forecasts.
