Icy, slick, slippery
With one month of cold weather under its belt, Bureau County road and street officials are hopeful their winter road supplies are sufficient for the rest of the season.
On Wednesday, Bureau County Highway Engineer John Gross said the county started the winter season with about 2,000 tons of salt/sand mix, but about 1,000 of those tons have gone out to townships and municipalities. So far this winter, the county highway department has used about 200 tons of its salt/sand mixture.
Right now, the existing road supply is similar to last year’s at this time, Gross said. However, it’s hard to gauge the supply from a certain time of the year because there’s no predicting when storms will hit. There have been several years when the county was hit hard in December with its snow storms, he added.
