Kewaunee County Nearing Last Winter's Salt Usage Total



Tuesday we learned that road salt usage in Door County this winter is running ahead of the five year average.

Today we're checking in with Kewaunee County.

Highway Commissioner Dale Jandrain says through February 7 Kewaunee County has gone through 1,680 tons of salt. That compares to 1,950 tons that was used during the entire winter of 2011-2012. So he says it looks like they'll eclipse last year's usage.

In fact when we talked to him, Jandrain was waiting for a new shipment of salt to arrive.

We also asked him about the number of two-hour delays Kewaunee County schools have had this winter. Jandrain says when the county receives a significant snowfall -- or freezing rain -- it just takes longer to clear the roads.

Jandrain says on such mornings he'll touch base with school administrators to inform them of the road conditions and plowing progress.

"Our first issue is safety and sometimes for safety reasons it's better to hold up (classes) a little bit."
