Waupaca County Highway Department
Welcome to the Waupaca County Highway Department. Although it is winter, we like to think of Spring as much as anyone. Pictured above is a photo from one of our chip sealing projects in the northeast part of Waupaca County. When the chips are placed on top of the oil, they are loose and can become blown around due to traffic, equipment, etc. We ask that if you come onto one of these projects that you take caution around our equipment, slow down, and be patient as we work to get the loose chips swept off. Have a good rest of winter and look forward to spring!
The Highway Department is responsible for many functions in the county including, but not limited to:
- The planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining of the county highway system.
- The maintaining of all state highways that travel through Waupaca County.
- The maintaining of many town road systems that hold maintenance agreements with us.
