An east-west route serving the Green Bay vicinity, Wis 172 originates as a rural two lane route in the village of Hobart. Traveling east from a roundabout with Wisconsin 54 and CTH E at Oneida, STH 172 heads to Austin Straubel International Airport (GRB), where it expands into a four-lane expressway. East from Packerland Drive (CTH EB), Wis 172 bisects residential areas of Ashwaubenon to a directional cloverleaf interchange with Interstate 41 (U.S. 41).
