State Trunk Highway 182 (often called Highway 182, STH-182 or WIS 182) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It runs east–west in northwest Wisconsin from Park Falls to Manitowish.

Route description[edit]

Starting at the intersection with WIS 13 (South 4th Avenue) in downtown Park Falls, WIS 182 heads eastward through town and crosses the North Fork of the Flambeau River. West of the river, the highway follows 1st Street South and Birch Street east of the river. Outside of town, the environment takes on a woodland character as the highway passes through the Chequamegon National Forest in rural Price County. The roadway turns northward and crosses into Iron County. In this area, it passes several small lakes before meeting a junction with WIS 47. The two highways merge and run concurrently northward for about four miles (6.4 km). At the intersection with US Highway 51 (US 51), WIS 47 and WIS 182 jointly terminate south of Manitowish.[3]

History[edit]

WIS 182 was designated along a section of roadway that was previously County Trunk Highway G (CTH-G) in 1948. The routing has remained unchanged since.[1]
