North Crossing to get new highway number in Eau Claire

Eau Claire County, August 26, 2005 
Eau Claire's North Crossing will get a new highway designation this fall when it changes from WIS 124 to WIS 312. 

The change is one of several that come as a result of US 53 Freeway construction:

  • WIS 312 will extend from I-94 between Eau Claire and Elk Mound east to the US 53 Freeway. 
  • WIS 124 will extend from WIS 64 near Bloomer to Chippewa County OO in the village of Lake Hallie. 
  • Existing 124/US 53 between the North Crossing (WIS 312) and Chippewa County OO will be signed US 53 until the entire US 53 Freeway is completed. At that time, it will be signed as "Business 53." 
  • The northern segment of the new US 53 Freeway, between the North Crossing (WIS 312) and Chippewa County OO will be signed as "Bypass 53" until fall 2006, when the entire freeway is open to traffic.
