The Door County Highway Department will have plenty of salt at their disposal as snow starts to fly this week. Over 2000 lane miles are maintained by the county using 19 trucks, eight graders, and wheel loaders to keep roads passable at reasonable speeds. Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says the salt sheds are full after last year, which saw an increase in salt usage compared to other years.
Kolodziej reminds motorists to give snow plows and salt crews plenty of space while they are operating and pass with extreme caution if conditions allow. The next five days all include some chance of snow according to the National Weather Service.
