I-39 Stevens Point Area Corridor Study - Need/purpose

Traffic on I-39.


The study is needed to assess current and future needs of the corridor and to determine safety, operations, pavement and bike/pedestrian needs. Several of the interchanges in the project area are experiencing operational, safety and geometric deficiencies due to traffic volumes and commercial development in the area. In addition, the existing freeway pavement is deteriorating.


  • Identify a long-term vision for the I-39 Stevens Point area corridor.
  • Provide a safe and efficient transportation system meeting current and near future needs.
  • Serving long-term traffic demand through freeway and interchange capacity improvements.

Project benefits

The study will provide a long-term vision and relative timeline for capacity and safety improvements along the I-39 Stevens Point area corridor. The study will also identify associated impacts and costs. This will allow WisDOT to strategically implement projects in a cost-effective manner.
