Route descriptionEdit

Highway 167 begins at WIS 83 south of Hartford; west of WIS 83, the road is Washington CTH O. From WIS 83, WIS 167 heads east along Holy Hill Road, intersecting CTH K and CC. In Hubertus, the Catholic shrine of Holy Hill National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians, is located on WIS 167. WIS 167 then intersects WIS 164. The route then has an interchange with the US 41/45 freeway in Richfield. At this interchange, labeled as Exit 54, eastbound WIS 167 merges onto the southbound freeway. WIS 167 splits off from the U.S. routes at the next interchange, Exit 57.

Now in Germantown, Highway 167 turns northeast along Lannon Road after leaving the freeway. The highway continues northeast until it intersects Mequon Road, which it follows east through the remainder of its route. WIS 167 has a brief concurrency with WIS 145 in Germantown. The road then crosses into Ozaukee County and the city of Mequon. In Mequon, WIS 167 junctions with WIS 181, which follows Wauwatosa Road. WIS 167 then begins its concurrency with WIS 57, which will last through the end of the route. At Port Washington Road, WIS 57/167 intersect CTH W. A short distance later lies the end of Highway 167 at its interchange with I-43. WIS 57 continues northward along the Interstate.
