IH 43 TCP Milwaukee & Ozaukee Counties

Silver Spring Drive to WIS 60
IH 43 TPC
Milwaukee and Ozaukee Counties

Project Description

The I-43 North-South Freeway is among the busiest routes in Wisconsin and is a critical Interstate link between southeast Wisconsin and the entire state. I-43 provides access to manufacturers, merchants, commuters and tourists within southeast Wisconsin, the Milwaukee metropolitan area, and other areas including Green Bay, Sheboygan, Manitowoc and Chicago.

WisDOT has maintained and rehabilitated the ramps, bridges, pavements and other structures on I-43 for 50 years. The North-South Freeway has exceeded its design life and it is no longer economical to maintain. The corridor needs full evaluation, so it can serve the communities into the future.

The project team will study the corridor, including the service interchanges and adjacent arterial roads in Milwaukee and Ozaukee counties. This review will:

  • Identify safety concerns.
  • Assess physical condition and configuration of the roadways.
  • Identify potential environmental concerns and socioeconomic factors that may be affected by the corridor.

General Tasks

  • Assistance with roadway design
