Wisconsin Highway 32

State Trunk Highway 32 (often called Highway 32, STH 32 or WIS 32) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Wisconsin that runs north–south in eastern Wisconsin. It runs from the Illinois border (at Illinois Route 137) north to the Michigan border (concurrent with U.S. Highway 45). It is named the 32nd Division Memorial Highway after the U.S. 32nd Infantry Division, and the highway shields have red arrows—the division's logo—on either side of the number 32.[1] The route of WIS 32 and the Red Arrow marking is set in state statute by the Wisconsin Legislature.[3]

Because of this, it is sometimes known as the 32nd Division Memorial Highway.[4] Red Arrow Park, a Milwaukee County park, is located in that city's downtown two blocks west of Highway 32's route through the area.
