Waukesha WI West Bypass Outlook

Though the above link did not confirm it, apparently this or a route nearby may be designated as WIS 318.  The route linked above is CTH TT from I-94 south to CTH D plus new ROW to WIS 59.  The city and state are splitting costs on it and it relates to a "TEMP US 18" which was added along WIS 83 and I-94 to attempt to reroute US-18 traffic around the project.

(For facebook users - this was posted to the "Traffic Signals and Highway Signs" group, and the camera looks to be facing northeast at the interchange of I-94 and CTH G which happens to be the northern end of the project. 

General location of the sign

Until WisDOT confirms this - I would hesitate to have the route added.

The Waukesha West Bypass is nothing new. They have been planning to add it since at least the early 90's. I would definitely hold on to any updating until they actually build the bypass.

For those that can see - Chris Lokken drove the short distance of the recenly signed (partially) WIS-318 which spans from I-94 south to US-18.  Not all signs are up, but it's clear what the current route is.  The album is only visible to his FB Friends though. 

I intend to do the drive myself, but the photos are a start.
