A valuable planning tool for summer road trips is now available. The latest version of the Wisconsin state highway map, a cooperative effort between the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and Department of Tourism, not only reflects recent changes to state and local roadways, but will also inspire trips to a variety of destinations across the Badger State.
“The Department of Transportation collaborated with the Department of Tourism to create a state highway map that promotes the Wisconsin tourism brand of fun,” said WisDOT Secretary Dave Ross.
“With a refreshed layout and pictures that tie into Tourism’s “Real Fun” campaign, the map makes it easy for travelers to explore Wisconsin’s favorite attractions, destinations and hidden gems,” noted Wisconsin Department of Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett.
“Since we want all motorists to reach their destinations safely, always be sure to buckle up, put the phone down and stay focused on what’s ahead of you,” concluded Secretary Ross.
The 2017-18 map reflects numerous changes since the map was last printed in 2015. The updates include:
- Fond du Lac County
- La Crosse County
- New designations for WIS 108 and County C
- Addition of 3.5 miles of divided highway for WIS 16 between La Crosse and West Salem
- Addition of 4 miles of divided highway for WIS 35 between La Crosse and Holmen
- Sauk County
- Jurisdictional transfer of WIS 123 to town road and city street in Baraboo
- Sheboygan/Manitowoc counties
- Removal of County LS and addition of County DL, between Sheboygan and Cleveland
- Winnebago County
- Addition of the newly incorporated Village of Fox Crossing
