State Trunk Highway 82 (often called Highway 82, STH 82 or WIS 82) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It runs east–west in southwest and south central Wisconsin from the Iowa border near Lansing, IA to Oxford.

This highway is a low traffic highway for its entire length.

Route description[edit]

Highway 82 begins on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River near Lansing, Iowa. Its next junction with a highway is across the bridge at Wisconsin Highway 35. The highway then turns to the North, forming a short concurrency with State Highway 35. At De Soto, Wisconsin, the route turns away from the Mississippi River Basin, and heads Northeasterly in general.

The Black Hawk Bridge is the western terminus of State Trunk Highway 82, the eastern terminus of Iowa Highway 9, and the southern terminus of Iowa Highway 26.

The next settlement is Viroqua, where it forms a wrong-way concurrency with US Highway 14, US Highway 61, State Highway 27. This ends at the traffic light with Decker Street, where the road turns East, concurrent with Wisconsin Highway 56. This concurrency ends approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) East of Viroqua. Highway 82 turns left, to proceed to La Farge, while Highway 56 continues to Viola.
