WIS 57 Study Area

The WIS 57 Reconstruction Project began about one mile north of the WIS 54/57 interchange in Brown County and continued north for 27.5 miles to the WIS 42 intersection about eight miles north of Brussels.

The realigned route generally parallels the old two-land road but has been widened and redesigned as a limited access, four-land highway.
