Wisconsin 15 Expansion Project
WIS 15 is a busy commuter route between New London and the Fox Cities area. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is studying WIS 15 to determine the best way to provide additional roadway capacity and improve operational efficiency and traffic safety.
Capacity must be added to serve existing and forecasted traffic volumes. Heavy congestion is expected by the year 2025 if WIS 15 is not expanded. Annual average daily traffic volumes in excess of 20,000 vehicles are predicted along portions of the highway by the year 2025.
Insufficiencies in the roadway structure, as well as geometric and intersection design, are creating an increased number of safety issues. An improved WIS 15 will increase safety, enhance economic development, lower transportation costs and enhance local access to roads.
