Icy road conditions

A light rain and the dropping temperatures overnight have caused the roads to be very icy Monday morning. Here is an update on the roads from Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej:

"Most of the roadways are very icy and hazardous throughout Door County.

A light rain and falling temperatures continue to create very icy conditions.

Highway Crews were out late last night applying salt to all State Highways and some of the higher volume County Roads.

State Highways continue to have icy  spots, but are in fair condition at this time.

County and Town roads are very icy. Crews have been out since 4:15 am, and have been applying salt to all roadways.

Progress has been very slow, with many trucks having to put on tire chains to ensure good traction for applying chemicals.

Temperatures are forecast to increase throughout the day, so once the chemicals have been applied, they should work very good.

However, getting them applied to the roads is going very slow due to conditions."

The National Weather Service has also issued a Special Weather Statement which expires at 8 AM due to the dense fog. There is also a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 10 AM. The NWS advises you to use caution while driving. Be prepared for untreated roads, allow plenty of extra time to get to where you are going, and keep plenty of distance between you and other vehicles.
