WASHBURN COUNTY -- With winter upon us The Washburn County Highway Department has received many reports of snow plowing across various roads and highways in the county.
According to State Statue 86.01 it is illegal to place material, such as snow, in the travel way of any road or highway. This activity may also cause an accident to happen.
Please consider this as you remove the snow from your driveway this winter.
Also, give plenty of room to the plows out on the roads. Pass plows with extreme caution and never drive into a snow plow’s cloud.
Remember, in bad weather, if you’re out there, so is your County Highway Department.
