Crews to repair County Road CC over I-41
(Little Chute) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region announces repair plans for the County Road CC/Rose Hill Road bridge over I-41 in the village of Little Chute, Outagamie County. An over-height vehicle struck the bridge on August 3, 2022 damaging a girder of the structure. Beginning Thursday, Sept. 1, 2022 crews will remove the damaged girder and install a concrete barrier along the location the girder was removed on County CC. This will re-establish two-way traffic with reduced shoulders on County CC.

Heart of the Valley Metropolitan Sewerage District

The Heart of the Valley Metropolitan Sewerage District (HOVMSD), which serves the village of Little Chute, is moving ahead with plans for a major interceptor rehabilitation project. The project involves installation of a liner inside the pipe that carries sewage to the district’s treatment plant.

The project is needed after recent video inspections of the pipe found extensive surface corrosion, which threatens the longevity of the pipe. The project will allow the interceptor to serve its customers, and area residents and businesses, for decades to come.

Actual project work will begin in the spring of 2023. HOVMSD will provide periodic updates on the project to keep everyone informed of its progress. For more information go to https://hvmsd.org/.

New Concrete Sidewalk Information - Salt

With winter comes snow and ice removal. Besides shoveling or using a snowblower, many sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, and streets are covered in salt to melt ice and snow and make concrete safer. However, using salt on your new concrete could end up harming it.


If your home has a new concrete sidewalk this year due to TDS or AT&T construction do not place salt on it the first year. 

Your new concrete is in its most fragile state the first year after it is poured. It needs time to  cure. settle, and gain strength to avoid breaking or cracking in the future.
