With more snow in the local forecast on Wednesday, area highway departments are gearing up for another busy couple of days of clearing roadways. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says his department uses reduced-salt alternatives that have been developed to make coverage on area roads cleaner and safer. He says plans are purchase new machinery to develop their own salt brine mixture.
Kolodziej says a salt brining mix used currently comes from the Brown County Highway Department. He says even with the extreme weather in the past two weeks, ample salt and sand is on hand for future snowstorms this winter.
