US-41 Project Background
US-41 is a major north-south transportation corridor of significant importance to Northeast Wisconsin, Brown County and the Village of Howard. Regionally, it links the population centers of Northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan to the Milwaukee and Chicago metropolitan areas. It is part of the National Highway System, and is a federal/state long-truck route. The segment of US-41 from Milwaukee to Green Bay has been identified as being eligible for interstate designation once upgraded to interstate standards. It is classified as a multi-lane backbone route on the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's (WisDOT) Corridors 2020 plan, which allocates high priority funding to highways connecting major regions and economic centers.
