U.S. 10 crosses the width of Wisconsin on a 293-mile route between Prescott and Manitowoc. The trek across the state does not coincide with any Interstate route, leading a long expressway / freeway portion for U.S. 10 between Marshfield and Appleton. The east end is located at the Lake Michigan Carferry linking Manitowoc to Ludington, Michigan.
In 1989, U.S. 10 was added to the state's major highway improvement projects between Marshfield and Appleton, and was added as a backbone route in Wisconsin's 2020 corridors program between Appleton and Stevens Point. The first segment of freeway opened between U.S. 41 and U.S. 45 in 1998, and the entire project was completed in 2012 with the last remaining expressway segment opening near Marshfield.
The U.S. 10 freeway was constructed from County N on the Wood County line to Long Road east of Junction City between July 16, 2010 and October 2011 at a cost of $25 million.1
