Three to four inches of snow fell on Door County on Friday night into Saturday morning which means another long day of work for the highway department. Snow crews went out at around 3 AM Saturday to start clearing snow from the roadways. Rob Robison, the Construction Superintendent for the Door County Highway Department, says they hope to able to send crews home sometime in the afternoon on Saturday. Robison added that it’s imperative to clear as much snow as possible before more bitter cold temperatures come in. The forecast calls for low temperatures below zero on Monday and Tuesday nights. Robison says the road crews have been working extremely hard and putting in long hours.
Robison says equipment has started to break down but so far there has been enough time between snowfalls that they’ve been able to fix everything. Salt supplies are getting low but snow is not in the forecast until at least Friday. Robison is happy that crews will be able to take some days off coming up.
