Providing a safe and efficient highway system is an important
part in meeting the needs of continued economic growth for central
In its current two-lane capacity, US 10 is unable to provide safe
and efficient travel as described in the Corridors 2020
transportation plan. The existing highway is routed through five
communities, which increases conflict points between local and
through traffic. Traffic volumes on US 10 are also expected to
increase, which will further reduce the function of this
US 10 will be constructed as a four-lane, 65 mph highway between
Marshfield and Stevens Point. Controlled access on US 10 will
increase safety and provide improved traffic flow. The highway
between WIS 13 and Wood County N will have limited access at
intersections located at approximately one mile spacing.
Access to new US 10 between Wood County N and I-39 will be
restricted to interchanges located at WIS 34 south, WIS 34 north and
I-39. An interchange will also be located at WIS 13/Wood County A
The new I-39 and US 10 west interchange was designed with free
flow access, which allows for safe and efficient ramp movements
between the two highways.
Local access to the Interstate is provided approximately two miles
south at the newly constructed Casimir Rd. interchange.
Upon completion of construction of the new Rd.way, portions of
existing US 10 will transfer to the jurisdiction of county and local
units of government. These changes will take effect as the
associated US 10 (WIS 13 to I-39) Expansion is completed. These jurisdictional
transfers are part of numerous state highway system changes
associated with the US 10 (WIS 13 to I-39) Expansion.
