The heatwave that's slowly moving through Door and Kewaunee counties is causing some road pavement to buckle. Highway departments have been able to repair the few sections impacted by buckling so drivers can travel without damage to their vehicles. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says concrete roads are at most risk of buckling and drivers need to be aware of changing conditions.
Some pavement damage due to buckling cannot be repaired until extremely hot weather passes through. Kolodziej says in those cases signs will be put up to detour traffic around the damaged sections.
