The challenge of clearing area roadways during last weekend’s Winter Storm Evelyn was met successfully by the Kewaunee County Highway Department without many issues. The multi-faceted event lasted over three days and required the road crews to get cooperation from their equipment and the public. Kewaunee County Highway Commissioner Todd Every says with a few exceptions everything went as smooth as could be expected considering the amount of snow needing to be removed.
Every says two trucks were transitioned for the spring construction season last week but one of the trucks were able to be re-harnessed for plowing before Winter Storm Evelyn started last Saturday. He gratefully noted the public’s cooperation of staying off the roads over the weekend which helped in the snow removal process.
