The Door County Highway Department is ready to go when Winter 2019-2020 brings in serious storms. Highway department crews have not had to go into full plowing, sanding and salting operations during our early cold spell and snow fall. Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says when the time comes his department is locked, loaded and ready to keep roads passable for traffic.
Towards the end of last winter, the Port of Green Bay had to open a shipping channel to bring in salt shipments. Local public works and county highway departments found their salt supplies running low because of harsher-than-anticipated winter weather.
