The number of miles rated favorable is holding steady, overall, with an increase on county roads. Approximately 53% of the state’s population has access to public transit. This represents no change from 2021 to 2022. Every winter, mild or severe, can create unique challenges to highway safety. Crews statewide continually review methods and strategies to provide the most effective service possible within resources. Traffic numbers in 2021 began to rebound from the reductions observed in 2020. The department continues to focus on projects and strategies to help drivers reach destinations in safe and timely fashion. (a lower number is better).

Transit provides a lifeline to those who depend on it to travel to work, school, medical services, shopping, and more. Greater transit availability means greater mobility for Wisconsin citizens.

Goal: The department’s goal is to increase the percent of the population with access to transit service to 55%.

Incidents on freeways and highways can range from minor property damage to serious traffic crashes. Such incidents affect travel time reliability. The goal is to reduce the length of time traffic flow is disrupted.

Goal: Clear 90% of all intermediate incidents in less than 2 hours and 80% of all major incidents in less than 4 hours.

Smooth flow of traffic creates positive impacts for the economy, environment, and our quality of life. Highway congestion occurs when traffic demand exceeds available capacity. Delay is reported on 13 of Wisconsin’s Metropolitan Planning Areas.

Goal: Reduce from previous year

The Planning Time Index (PTI) aids in predicting how long a traveler needs to get from point to point. The information generated also creates insights for transportation planners. 

Goal: Improve on reliability from previous year

All new highway construction and reconstruction projects funded with state or federal funds must consider bikeways to serve the mobility and safety needs of those who cannot or choose not to drive.

Goal: Reach 100% favorable conditions on all roads where bicycles are not prohibited

Returning roads to pre-winter storm event conditions ensures travel reliability and safety of road users. This measurement focuses on the timely treatment of coverage areas throughout the state highway system.

Goal: Achieve bare wet conditions 70% of the time with the period.
