“It’s just going to get washed away, so if it was just a snowstorm and we knew it was going to start out snow we would be out brining our streets right now,” Kimberly Street Commissioner Dave Vander Velden said.
Green Bay’s Department of Public Works says crews applied sand at hills, curves and intersections ahead of the icy conditions.
Outagamie County was prepared for when the roads ice over, but expected it to be easier once the rain turned over to snow. “If it’s ice,
we’ll have people sliding all over we’ll have problems ourselves but we’ll use a lot more salt to melt that little bit of ice than we will if it’s just snow we can plow it off the road and shoot it with a little bit of salt and we’ll be done,” Outagamie County Highway Patrol Superintendent Randy Roloff said.
The city crews, however, said drivers need to adjust their behavior. They warned it might be difficult to tell the difference when the rain on the road turns to ice.
“You should definitely be cautious because what might look like wet pavement could be ice. We’ll do our best to salt everything so it is wet pavement but we can’t guarantee that,” Vander Velden said.
