WIS 60 is a crucial east/west route in the SE Region of Wisconsin
that carries high volumes of traffic between I-43 in Ozaukee County
and US 45 and US 41 in Washington County.
Not only does WIS 60 need to accommodate for the heavy volumes of
east/west traffic in the region, it also serves as a important
commercial corridor for the villages of Jackson and Grafton, and the
city of Cedarburg.
Currently, WIS 60 travelers are experiencing high crash rates in
the village of Jackson and into the rural areas of Washington and
Ozaukee Counties. The crash rates in those areas, which represent a
large majority of the corridor, are above the statewide average when
compared to similar facilities across the state. Those safety issues
along with increasing traffic volumes along the corridor present a
need to examine the corridor as it operates today, as well as
proposing improvements to ensure the corridor operates in a safe and
efficient manner long into the future.
Project benefits/anticipated outcomes
A large goal of the study will be to produce a preferred
alternative that has the ability to decrease safety issues along the
corridor, while at the same time provide an efficient highway that
can support the current and future capacity needs along this stretch
of WIS 60.
