US 53, WIS 70 (Spooner) to just north of US 63 (Lampson), in Washburn County (green line on map).

Project overview

WisDOT is conducting a Corridor Preservation Study along US 53, from WIS 70 to Lampson, due to increased traffic and development along US 53.

The increased capacity is creating operational and safety issues along the corridor. Most of the problem areas are located at higher volume at-grade (i.e. stop sign) intersections, such as the intersections for Spooner and Trego.

A completed Corridor Preservation Study will provide a blue-print by which local development can be planned and implemented in harmony with the operational demands of the highway.


Study - Long term planning with no construction activity.
