Located in southern Waukesha County, the Village of Mukwonago is easy to reach from both Wisconsin and Illinois via I-43, the Rock Freeway. Mukwonago offers picturesque views of Phantom Lake to the west, Vernon Marsh State Wildlife Area to the north and the Mukwonago and Fox rivers.
Interstate 94 lies 14 miles to the east, while Interstate 43 is easily accessed with an entrance and exit ramp right at Mukwonago. State Highways 20, 36 and 83 allow for the smooth flow of traffic to several major municipalities. County roads and rustic roads make travel both convenient and scenic.
Mukwonago is about 30 minutes from Milwaukee, Racine and the Illinois border. A short drive of about 20 minutes will take you to the popular vacation resorts of Lake Geneva or Alpine Valley.\
Mukwonago is conveniently located within 35 minutes of General Mitchell International Airport and within five miles of East Troy Municipal Airport. Mukwonago has all of the major attractions of southeastern Wisconsin and has a small-town atmosphere with a big-city attitude for work, education and recreation. In 2011 State Highway 83 will be closed from the north side of the Village of Mukwonago to Genesee while the road is improved and widened to four lanes. During this construction period, the entire Village of Mukwonago will continue to be open for business with alternate access from the north.
There should be no changes from the south, east and west but it may be challenging to reach Mukwonago from the north.
The Chamber of Commerce suggests following State Highway 59 to North Prairie, then taking County E south to County EE, then east to County NN to the Village of Mukwonago. Another route from Waukesha would be Count I to Hwy NN to the village. The official State detour will also be marked, looping from Genesee to Waukesha to Vernon and then back to Mukwonago.
Just remember that your favorite businesses are still open and worth the trip since “All Roads Lead to Mukwonago!” Check out the Chamber of Commerce website at www.mukwonagochamber.org for construction updates. We thank you for your patience, see you soon!
