53 Corridor > Northern Douglas County Area
US 53 is a backbone route in WisDOTís Corridors 2020 Plan, and this segment of the corridor is part of the National Highway System (NHS).
The plan places a high priority in protecting highway investments that connect major economic/population centers and carry long-distance, statewide traffic.
Between 1969 and 2006, US 53 has experienced several capacity expansion and safety enhancements between La Crosse and Superior. These improvements represented significant investments by WisDOT.
The US 53 corridor has been recognized as an important route with the desire for conversion to a freeway/expressway initiated as early as the late 1960ís.
