WIS 29 corridor preservation, Abbotsford to Wausau


WIS 29, WIS 13 (Abbotsford) to US 51 (Wausau)​​, Marathon County


​​​​​​WIS 29 carries approximately 18,700 vehicles per day between Abbotsford and Wausau. One of the primary objectives of the WIS 29 corridor preservation plan is to ensure that this important highway continues to operate safely and efficiently, and to protect the state's investment in this important east/west route. By officially mapping and preserving the right of way, the department can protect the state's long-term investment in the highway while providing local communities with information needed to plan for future development.​


This study will provide for future freeway conversion. No construction or design is scheduled. Freeway conversion will take place as mobility or safety concerns warrant changes, and when funding is available.​
