The Wisconsin Department of Transportation, abbreviated as WisDOT, is a governmental agency of the U.S. state of Wisconsin responsible for planning, building and maintaining the state's highways. It is also responsible for planning trasportation in the state relating to rail, including passenger rail, public transit, freight water transport and air transport, however it devotes very little of its resources to these modes.

The Wisconsin DOT is made up of three executive offices and five divisions organized according to transportation function. WisDOT's main office is located in Madison, and maintains regional offices throughout the state.
