The Door County Highway Department reports that highways and secondary roads should be in good condition as work crews wrapped up at the end of day Tuesday. Highway workers pulled double shifts to prevent a complete travel shut down during the storm. Thad Ash, Patrol Superintendent for the Door County Highway Department said the volume and pace of the snowfall presented a challenge for his crews.
Ash stated that because the precipitation was unrelenting and windswept it eliminated the opportunity to use salt as a key element in clearing the roads. The positive aspect of that challenge was that the storm did not disproportionately expend their material and salt supplies.
