State Route 26 at Watertown.
State Route 26 begins in the southern town of Janesville, where there is a connection to Interstate 90. The road heads northeast and is a 2×2 divided highway past Milton and on to the Fort Atkinson bypass. The Fort Atkinson Bypass is a 2×2 lane freeway and merges into the Jefferson Bypass, which is also a freeway. This stretch of highway is 20 kilometers long. After that, the road becomes a 2×2 divided highway and passes along Johnson Creek, where there is a connection to Interstate 94.
You then reach the town of Watertown, where State Route 26 forms the western bypass. This is partly a freeway. Farther north, the road is single-lane and passes through less populated countryside to Waupun, where there is a short double number with US 151, which is part freeway. Further north, State Route 26 runs as a single-lane rural road to Interstate 41 at Oshkosh.

State Route 26 itself has never been a major thoroughfare, but there are some larger towns on the route, Fort Atkinson, Jefferson, Watertown, and Waupun, where bypasses have been built. In the 1990s, Fort Atkinson’s bypass was constructed as a super two, doubling to a freeway in 2010-2011. The Jefferson bypass was built directly as a freeway and opened in 2010. In 2011, the Watertown bypass opened, also as a freeway. This provided the single-lane State Route 26 with quite a few kilometers of freeway in a short time. In 2014, a 2×2 divided highway opened between Milton and Fort Atkinson. In 2015, the final section between Watertown and State Route 60 south of Juneau was doubled to 2×2 lanes.
Every day 19,000 vehicles run between Janesville and Milton and 9,000 vehicles between Milton and Fort Atkinson. The highway around Fort Atkinson handles 8,000 vehicles and the highway around Jefferson 13,000 vehicles. About 8,000 vehicles drove north of I-94 on the Watertown bypass.
State Route 341 in Wisconsin
State Route 341 is a state route and freeway in the U.S. state of Wisconsin, located in the city of Milwaukee. The highway is 2 kilometers long.
State Route 341 begins at a traffic light intersection with National Avenue and heads north as a freeway past Miller Park, a baseball stadium. The area mainly consists of parking lots. The highway has 2 to 4 lanes in each direction and ends after 2 kilometers at the Stadium Interchange with Interstate 94. From this point, the Stadium Freeway continues north, numbered US 41.
State Route 341 is Milwaukee’s shortest but oldest freeway. The first part opened to traffic in 1953 and was 700 meters long. The highway then ran in 2×2 lanes from National Avenue to the stadium. In 1962 the second part opened further north to Vliet Street. Then the Stadium Interchange with I-94 was also opened. In the late 1990s, a new stadium was built, requiring the Stadium Freeway to be moved a little eastward. This happened between November 1996 and August 6, 1998.
The State Route 341 number was not assigned to this route until 1999.
The Stadium Freeway was originally planned as a much longer north-south route, from I-43/I-894 (Airport Freeway) north to Cedarburg. Little has come of this. However, the interchange with I-43/I-894 has been partially built, and now provides access to a carpool area.
The design of the Stadium Interchange.
It is planned to reconstruct the Stadium Interchange with I-94 and US 41. State Route 341 will then no longer provide free-flow access to US 41, but will go through traffic lights.
57,000 vehicles drive on the highway every day.
