The heavy rains and unseasonably warm temperatures have passed. The flooding caused by the rains and melting snowpack, however, continues to impact driving and clean-up efforts in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Kewaunee County Highway Commissioner Todd Every says some highways will need repairs once the flood waters recede.
That's despite highway department crews clearing culverts and ditches of ice and snow prior to the flooding. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej expects his department to remain busy as flood waters move from one location to another.
Until the flooding recedes, drivers are being told not to drive through water-covered roadways to avoid the risk of accidents caused by hydroplaning.
