State Trunk Highway 42/57 Business

Home » Guides » Wisconsin » State Trunk Highway 42/57 Business


Wis 42 Business and Wis 57 Business join the Wis 42/57 expressway bypass with Downtown Sturgeon Bay in Door County. Wis 42/57 encircle the city along the south and east sides, narrowing across Sturgeon Bay Ship Channel on a two lane draw bridge. Locally maintained, the business route angles northeast from a wye interchange east of Duluth Avenue (CTH S) along Green Bay Road into the Sturgeon Bay street grid. Madison Street leads the route north to Maple Street.

The business route crosses Sturgeon Bay on the Maple Street Bridge to Oregon Street and Downtown. The route navigates through the business district northwest along 3rd Avenue to Jefferson Street northeast. 8th Avenue extends Wis 42/57 Business north by Garland Park to Egg Harbor Road. A commercial arterial, Egg Harbor Road returns the business route to Wis 42/57 on the northeast side of Sturgeon Bay.
