The Door County Highway Department is busy taking advantage of the recent drier weather conditions to get their projects done this summer and fall. Due to an extremely wet spring and summer, the road crews are finding themselves playing catch-up, according to Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej.
Kolodziej says his crews are behind schedule and will be doing paving and construction work into the month of November, rather than the usual completion in late October. He says if winter weather comes early, the Door County Highway Department can run materials through the asphalt mix that allows crews to work in colder temperatures and finish up the needed work this year, yet.
