Route description

Highway 33 begins 300 feet (91 m) east of the Mississippi River where it intersects U.S. Highway 14 (US 14) / US 61 just south of downtown La Crosse. It ends in downtown Port Washington at Highway 32 one mile (1.6 km) west of Lake Michigan.

History

Prior to European settlement, the foot trail from Port Washington to Horicon was the most traveled of seven trails that met in Horicon Marsh. A road was constructed to provide access from Lake Michigan to the fertile hunting grounds of the marsh, to provide food for the crews of ships on the lake. It is one of the oldest roads in Wisconsin.
