Project overview

WIS 32 provides a critical connection east and west of the Fox River thru downtown De Pere.

WisDOT, in partnership with the city of De Pere, is leading this one mile long study to help determine need and scope of future construction projects. The pavement condition and the need to replace utilities along WIS 32 have been identified. The highway’s typical cross section and capacity will be evaluated.

The purpose of this multi-year study is to determine what this busy corridor will look like in the future, and how it will best serve the citizens of De Pere, Brown County and Northeast Wisconsin.

A joint effort between the city of De Pere and WisDOT, by developing a long range plan, part of which incorporates evaluating the City of De Pere 2010 comprehensive plan and the De Pere Downtown Master Plan.

The study is looking to address:

  • Typical cross sections to meet transportation needs now and in the future
  • Existing and proposed traffic patterns for Main Ave. and Reid St.
  • Intersection operations
  • Bicycle/pedestrian and transit options
  • Existing railroad bridge structure for possible expansion
  • Utility replacements

This planning study will also provide information needed to determine the improvement schedule.

Planning started 2011.
