The Wisconsin Department of Transportation, together with the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Rustic Roads Program, one of the state?s most successful and longest-lasting state/local partnership programs, with a photo contest.
Photos must be taken between June 16th and December 31st of this year and submissions will be accepted through January 15th. The Rustic Roads Board will select winning photos in six categories and will be looking for photos that best highlight the natural qualities, features and vistas commonly found on 'Wisconsin's' officially-designated Rustic Roads.
Currently, there are 115 Rustic Roads spanning some 665 miles through 59 counties. To qualify as a Rustic Road, a route must have outstanding natural features such as rugged terrain, native vegetation, abundant wildlife, open areas or agricultural vistas. Rustic roads range from under two miles long to 37 miles in length and have speed limits of no more than 45 miles per hour
