WIS 167/Mequon Rd. (US 145-WIS 181) Corridor Study - Need/purpose

Why is this project needed?

Safety

This corridor study seeks to preserve safe operations on WIS 167

Traffic growth and congestion

  • Due to the transition in adjacent land use from rural to urban uses, traffic is expected to grow along the entire corridor at a faster rate than the historic growth trend.
  • By 2040, travel time through the corridor will increase an average of 4-5 minutes without improvements.
  • As traffic congestion increases, operations at intersections will deteriorate to undesirable levels by 2040.
  • WIS 167 is a National Highway System Route and provides an important east-west link between US 41 and I-43.
  • Crashes exceed statewide crash rates along the segment between Pilgrim Road and Country Aire Drive.
  • There were 154 crashes with two fatalities and 17 significant injuries.

Lack of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations

Pedestrian and bicycle accommodations are discontinuous throughout the corridor.
