Highway 23 between Ripon and Green Lake is being reconstructed so plan a few extra minutes for your trip. The second phase will started on July 28 closing an addtional two miles of Highway 23. The "Official Detour" only adds about 6 miles to the route. (Please see the detour map attachment)
For those of you traveling from the South East, you can turn off of Highway 23 onto County Road KK West of Rosendale and follow it West. At the Green Lake County Line it will change to County K and you can follow it to Highway 73 North which is part of the official detour. The official detour is well marked and will take you north back up to Highway 23 just East of Princeton. As an alternative, you can turn off of Highway 73 onto County Road D which will also take you into Princeton.
From the Northeast, turn off of Highway 41 West onto Highway 44 West for about 2 miles and then turn right onto Highway 91 West. At Berlin take 49 South about 5 miles to County J. Watch your speed as some of it is only 45 MPH. County J will bring you all the way into Princeton.
