USH 53 Freeway - Eau Claire and Chippewa Counties, WI

USH 53 Freeway has over 40,000 vehicles travel its pavement on a daily basis. In an effort to reduce congestion and crashes, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation determined the need to provide a new four-lane, divided highway bypass of USH 53 (Hastings Way) from the US 53/Golf Road interchange area in the City of Eau Claire to a new WIS 29/US 53 interchange in the Chippewa County Village of Lake Hallie. A system of interchanges provides connections between existing US 53 and the new freeway at STH 93, Clairemont Ave (US 12), Birch Street/River Prairie Drive, North Crossing, Melby Road, and Chippewa County 00 (Hallie). Project hightlights include:

  • Vehicle tunnel lighting with automatic controls
  • Emergency push-to-talk call stations
  • Electronic blank-out signs for "Tunnel Closed"
  • Automatic emergency generator for back-up power for tunnel lighting and single point intersection
  • High mast and freeway lighting
  • Video surveillance cameras connected to Wis. State Highway Patrol

Awards

  • ACEC Wisconsin Best of State Award - 2008
