Plow drivers ready for snow storm

NOW: Plow drivers ready for snow storm

RACINE COUNTY (CBS 58) — Plow drivers have been preparing for the snow for several days. 

Racine County Public Works started filling up trucks with salt on Friday. 

Crews will be using a highly concentrated salt to help with road conditions. 

The director of public works and development said their top priority is I-94 because that’s where the majority of the traffic is moving through the area, but they also handle all of the state and county roads. 

Crews will be working in twelve hour shifts to handle the snow. 

“Our biggest concern is that people are driving too fast for conditions and so really, if you don’t have to be out in the snow storm, stay home, that’s the safest place,” said Julie Anderson, Racine County Director of Public Works and Development. 

Anderson also asks people to not pass plows while they are working.
