Safety on the local roadways includes dealing with heavy snow removal equipment when the time comes. More snow cleanup on the roads was done in the past two weeks as the Door and Kewaunee communities dug out of over a combined foot of snow. Mike Barker, municipal services director for the City of Sturgeon Bay, says roadways are not the only place drivers need to be aware of snowplow-equipped vehicles.
When the next snowstorm hits, Barker suggests that drivers slow down, give the plows and graders plenty of room and do not try passing them on the roads. He says the best advice he can give is to stay off the roads if possible.
