Road Closure

Waupaca County Highway Department (WCHD) would like to inform you of a road closure that will be taking place. Although at this time we cannot inform you of the exact date, as soon as water levels go down, CTH X, between Northport and New London, will be closed for the replacement of culverts.

The project will include removal of  four deteriorated culverts and endwalls, installation of two (2) new aluminum box culverts and endwalls at an approved lower depth, repairing of asphaltic pavement on CTH X and the Sturgeon Trail, replacement of guard rail, and landscaping and erosion control into Mukwa Wildlife Marsh.

This project is being funded by Waupaca County and Walleyes for Tomorrow. 

 We anticipate CTH X to be closed for approximately 2 weeks. A detour will be in place from CTH X to CTH O to STH 54 to CTHD back to CTH X.

 WCHD is working with emergencies agencies who will be informed of this road closure. Please be assured that if an emergency does accrue, WCHD will make sure the emergency personal and equipment will be able to pass.

 If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to call our office at 715-258-7152 or send us an email at jill.lodewegen@co.waupaca.wi.us
