State Trunk Highway 55 (often called Highway 55, STH-55, or WIS 55) is a state highway in Wisconsin, United States. It travels south-to-north in the northeastern part of Wisconsin from an intersection with U.S. Route 151 (US 151) approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north of Brothertown, near the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago in Calumet County, to the Michigan state line at the Brule River approximately one mile (1.6 km) northeast of Nelma in Forest County, where it connects to M-73.

Route description

Along its route, STH-55 serves Kaukauna, Shawano, the Menominee Indian Reservation, Crandon, and the Nicolet side of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

History

A new roundabout was opened at the intersection of WIS 55 and US 10 between Sherwood and Kaukauna in the autumn of 2009. Another roundabout recently opened at the busy intersection of WIS 55 and WIS 114 approximately one mile (1.6 km) west of Sherwood, Wisconsin.

Over the summer of 2018, a 1 mile (1.6 km) section of the Wisconsin Highway 55 at its interchange with I-41 in Kaukauna was reconstructed and 4 new roundabouts were be added.[2]
