Planning resources

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) provides a number of resources to assist transportation professionals with their planning efforts.

System maps

Corridor studies and plans

Part of WisDOT’s long-range transportation plan, Connections 2030, is the identification of a series of system-level priority corridors. These corridors are critical to Wisconsin’s travel patterns and support the state’s economy.

Manuals and guidance

The Transportation Planning Manual is a web-based tool that facilitates the communication of planning policy and serves as a planning information resource.

WisDOT has developed planning guidance for the development of pedestrian and bicycle facilities.

WisDOT created a document that provides guidelines for developing Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs).

Comprehensive planning

A number of resources, including downloadable element guidebooks, are available on WisDOT's "transportation and land use" website.
