HWY 50 Expansion Project

    HWY 50 Expansion Project
    Posted on 01/31/2021
    State Trunk Highway 50 is a major east-west route serving Kenosha County communities. This project consists of reconstructing 4.4 miles of WIS 50, from 117th Avenue in Pleasant Prairie to just west of 43rd Avenue in Kenosha.

    The project includes:
    - Widening the roadway from four to six lanes between 117th and 57th avenues (3.6 miles).
    - Reconstructing the existing four-lane road between 57th and 43rd avenues (0.8 miles).
    - Implementing access management measures, including driveway and median modifications.
    - Providing more capacity at local road intersections.
    - Improving access road connections.
    - Adding sidewalk and bicycle accommodations throughout.

    The proposed HWY 50 corridor improvements are needed to address:
    - Mobility, safety, and access need.
    - Insufficient mainline lane capacity.
    - Deteriorating pavement and bridge structures.
    - Substandard mainline and intersection geometrics.
    - Oversized/overweight (OSOW) truck route.
    - Major commercial corridor.

    This project is slated to start in spring 2021 and be completed in 2023.

    More information about the HWY 50 expansion can be found on the WisDOT website here.
