County E

Home » Guides » Wisconsin » County E

CTH-E follows Ballard Road north from CTH-OO (Northland Avenue) to Applecreek Road as part of a two-county road between Appleton and Hobart. County E previously began at Wis 96 (Wisconsin Avenue) in Appleton, but was later decommissioned south of County OO. The Ballard Road section between Wisconsin Avenue and Interstate 41 in Appleton was historically a part of U.S. 41 Business, which looped southwest to Downtown via Wis 96, Wis 47 and Wis 125.
