MADISON – Governor Scott Walker today called on the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) to evaluate expanding the Interstate 41 corridor in the Fox Valley between Appleton and DePere.

“After speaking with community leaders and elected officials regarding the importance of Interstate 41 to the continued growth of northeastern Wisconsin, I am calling on the Department of Transportation to evaluate expanding the Interstate 41 section between Appleton and DePere,” said Governor Walker. “I want to thank Senator Roger Roth, Representative Jim Steineke, and Representative David Murphy for their leadership on this issue.”

In December 2017, Governor Walker advanced US 10/441, and it will be completed a year early as a result. WisDOT can now focus on future improvements of Interstate 41.

WisDOT’s analysis could result in a department request for the Transportation Projects Commission (TPC) to approve the entire corridor, or portions of the corridor, for environmental study as a potential Major Highway Project.
