WIS 21 is an important state highway serving the local economy
and linking major population and economic centers and is experiencing traffic growth and congestion as
increasing community development creates additional demand for WIS
21 capacity. Meeting future economic and travel needs are becoming
more challenging as WIS 21 conditions deteriorate.
In order to
maintain a safe and efficient transportation system, the Wisconsin
Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is working with local
jurisdictions to develop a long-range plan for WIS 21 from Rivermoor
Road to US 41 in Winnebago County.
This collaborative long-range planning effort will include
transportation recommendations that meet future economic and travel
needs. The recommendations will create a picture showing how WIS 21
will look in the future. Knowing the future of WIS 21 allows
communities to make informed land use decisions that are compatible
with WIS 21.
The long-range plan time period is 20 or more years. Long-range
recommendations are usually implemented after short-term and
Recommendations and goals/objectives
WIS 21 long-range recommendations will include:
interchanges, overpasses and local road modifications.
and mid-term recommendations may include:
Changing signal timing
Lengthening turn lanes
Adding turn lanes
Providing slotted turn lanes
WisDOT developed a draft goal and objectives using information
from the local officials stakeholder committee and stakeholder
surveys. No construction is currently scheduled. The WIS 21 Planning Study will
provide information needed to determine the improvement schedule.
