Rustic Roads Board

The purpose of the Rustic Roads program is to preserve what remains of Wisconsin’s scenic, lightly traveled back roads for the leisurely enjoyment of bikers, hikers, and motorists.

The Rustic Roads Board is responsible for assisting in the establishment of the Rustic Roads system by considering local governments’ applications for Rustic Road designation and exercising final approval authority for Rustic Road designation through a formal vote.

Per statute, the Rustic Roads Board is composed of four members appointed directly by WisDOT Secretary, four members nominated through Wisconsin Counties Association for Secretary approval and the two chairs from the legislative standing committees on transportation. Appointees serve staggered four year terms.
