Thawing of snow causing potential flooding on roads

Local law enforcement is warning drivers to be prepared to take alternate routes when driving around the area this weekend.  With near-record snowfall the past six weeks, the recent warm-up has caused substantial melting leading to the possible flooding.  Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says drivers should avoid driving through standing water on roadways. 

 

 

Joski says the real issue is that a lot of snow still remains in ditches and is significantly blocking culverts from draining roadways properly.  He advises drivers not to drive through any standing water on the roads and to take a different route to be safe.
