Heatwave could cause issue to roads

As summer weather hits the Door County area concrete could begin to buckle and come apart.  The occurrence is not unusual, according to John Kolodziej, the Highway Commissioner of Door County. He says, fortunately, Door County does not have many concrete roads.  Even though no road buckling has been reported,  Kolodziej says that the state highways will buckle and crack in the heat.  Warmer temperatures will lead to the roads to expand and for the concrete to push upward causing surface cracks. Kolodziej offers tips should you drive upon road buckling or cracking. 


Kolodziej adds that the concrete must be eventually replaced.   He says crews will use an expansive product to help the concrete from breaking again later on down the road.
