WIS 20 & USH 45 Roundabout

Racine County

PROJECT PROFILE

Enhancing Roundabout Infrastructure

JT addressed concerns about this high-speed rural intersection, increasing the capacity and safety.
The Opportunity

With increased traffic and frequent crashes, it was clear that the WIS 20 & USH 45 intersection was no longer functioning properly and needed improvements. This two-way stop-controlled intersection required new advancements to handle current traffic patterns. 

WIS 20 & USH 45 Roundabout
The Outcome

Substantial improvements were made at the WIS 20 & USH 45 intersection, including installing a single-lane roundabout and adding high-speed approaches, OSOW accommodations, and lighting infrastructure. Careful planning ensured impacts to the nearby gas station would be minimized, while effective OSOW accommodations were seamlessly integrated into the design. With the addition of these elements, the WIS 20 & USH 45 intersection is set to handle the increasing commuter traffic for years to come.  

JT also collaborated with WisDOT’s SE Region traffic group to implement signal upgrades at the WIS 20 & WIS 36/83 intersection, reinforcing traffic management capabilities and safety measures.
