This week the Waupaca County Highway Department crews are performing:

Week of March 23, 2015


Construction Work

CTH T - In 2015 reconstruction will begin between Crain and Island Road along with adding curb and gutter to portions of last years reconstruction.

CTH E - From the Waushara County Line (Twin Lake Rd) to High Point Ridge we will begin a state and federal funded project. Our portion of the project includes replacing the cross-culverts, widening the intersections to accommodate curb & gutter, and to widen the roadway and improve the slopes to meet current standards. The Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles will then select a contractor to place curb & gutter, reclaim the pavement and pave the roadway.

CTH D - On the north side of New London, we have two pavement replacement projects on CTH D. Between N. Ridge Drive and Spurr Road is 100% county but we have received partial funding for the portion from Spurr Rd to USH 45. Portions of CTH D will need to be rubbleized, remove blacktop, brek up the concrete and shape it to pave. On the northern portion, the asphalt will be milled off and paved.

CTH I - Time permitting, CTH I between CTH Y and Paape Rd in the Town of Matteson will include reconstructing both intersections to come out into the middle of CTH I, as well as rebuilding the portion of CTH I between them.
