Door County Highway Department employees are preparing to take on spring work with health protocols in place. The department has handled road work on an emergency basis for the first two-and-a-half weeks of the “Safer at Home” order. This week, highway department employees were recalled to work. Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says that includes transitioning from winter to spring work while ensuring workers are protected.
Kolodziej says some construction work is scheduled for next week. At the same time, Kewaunee County Road Commissioner Todd Every says, via email: “At this time, we do not have a lot of work (requiring a larger crew of workers) going out on the highways. We are working on projects around our facilities, getting equipment ready for summer construction projects, and normal spring maintenance while attempting to "Social Distance" as much as possible.”
