Memorials on state highways

Flowers at a roadside memorial in Wisconsin.

WisDOT and county highway maintenance employees understand the distress and shock people experience when a loved-one is killed in a traffic crash.

We also recognize the need many people have to grieve by placing a memorial within a highway right of way near the crash site.

Memorial guidelines

WisDOT produced a brochure that offers guidelines for placing a memorial on a highway right of way.
