The Waupaca County Highway Department is digging into Division Street this week. The $3 million reconstruction project, split between the city of New London and the county because the street is also County Trunk D, has been underway since the spring. However, much of the work so far has been underground utility improvements performed by New London’s hired contractors. As of Monday July 9th, city residents should begin seeing change on the street itself because county crews will start reconstructing the road. County crews will remove all the curb and gutter, sidewalk and roadway from Beacon Ave to Oak Street. A new sidewalk has been laid on the west side of Division Street from Beckert Road to the former Kenneth Johnson dentistry office. When the project concludes, the west side will have continuous sidewalk from Becker Road to Wolf River Avenue. The east side will not have continuous sidewalk, but existing sidewalk will be reconstructed.
