Wisconsin State Highways 29 and 47 run through Slab City, and provide access to both north-south (Wisconsin State Highway 47) and east-west (Wisconsin State Highway 29) trade routes that span the entire state. The community is well connected to large cities, such as Appleton along Hwy 47 and Green Bay along Hwy 29.
An old alignment of State Highway 47 ran more centrally through the community. The route of the highway was changed on the weekend of October 1, 1950 to run alongside the hill Slab City is situated upon, rather than over it. The old road, which is to say Slab City's original main road, still has many of the community's population living along it, and is called "Old 47".
