Routes

Wisconsin Highway 95 zigzagging along Fountain City Ridge in Buffalo County.

Wisconsin was the first place to ever devise a numbered system for its highways. It’s also a bit unusual in that letter names are given to county-owned and maintained highways. So let’s follow selected routes on the State Trunk Tour.
