WIS 164 (County J) - Need/purpose

Car driving uphill on WIS 164.

Why is this project needed?

Motorists encounter several issues along the WIS 164 corridor including:

  • High traffic volumes, especially in Waukesha County, that hamper efficient and safe travel
  • Blind intersections, sharp hill crests and narrow shoulders that cause difficult and unsafe operations
  • A high number of access points that result in tightly-spaced and unsafe entry points to the highway. These include major intersections, side streets, commercial entrances, and residential driveways and field entrances.
  • Development that adds to traffic congestion and affects driving conditions
