Wisconsin Department of Transportation Cuts Ribbon on New WIS 23 Corridor in Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties
Governor Tony Evers today joined WisDOT and community leaders to celebrate the new WIS 23 corridor in Fond du Lac and Sheboygan counties.
The long-awaited completion of this project makes travel safer for all modes of transportation along this important east-west highway.
While the WIS 23 project was enumerated in 1999, construction did not begin until 2019, and these costly delays negatively impacted thousands of people who rely on this highway. During those 20 years, there were 887 crashes along WIS 23, involving 340 injuries and 11 fatalities.
Construction began in the Spring of 2019 to expand WIS 23 from US 151 in Fond du Lac east to County P in Plymouth, and the modifications include increased capacity, various intersection upgrades, and three new interchanges to improve safety and mobility.
Two, new park and ride lots along WIS 23 offer convenient access for ride-sharing between Fond du Lac and Sheboygan counties. The 17-mile extension of the Old Plank Trail now connects Sheboygan and Fond du Lac with a bicycle and pedestrian path.
This project is an important example of partnership and collaboration across communities, businesses, and all levels of government.
GRAEF is honored to help create safer travel for all by providing expressway design, roundabout design, signal design, two interchanges, and storm sewer and culvert design for this exciting, long-awaited project.
