Wisconsin, along with three other midwestern states, has entered into an agreement to begin a collaborative project that will create a route for electric vehicles stretching along 1,100 miles of drivable shoreline around Lake Michigan.

Described as an electric Route 66, the Lake Michigan EV Circuit Tour will be a scenic route that includes vehicle charging options along the Lake Michigan coastline. The route will include charging stations at coastal communities, lighthouses, and tourism attractions, such as state parks, hospitality locations, breweries, vineyards, restaurants, and other small businesses.

The new chargers will be tied together with existing charging infrastructure networks at large entertainment attractions in population centers along the route, such as Green Bay, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Traverse City, Michigan.
