Winter Road Procedures
State Highways will be plowed, salted or sanded as the DOT requires.  In cases where the Florence County Highway Commissioner deems it necessary, they will orverride this policy.  The Florence County Sheriff's Department will contact the Highway Department when they find unsafe conditions on the road.

Florence County's county trunk highways will be plowed, salted or sanded depending on location of the road and weather conditions.  County Trunk Highways NN, N, B, and south half of U will be treated with salt as its primary way to clear snow and ice and County Trunk Highways C, D, and the north half of U will be treated with a sand/salt mixture.  It is up to the Highway Commissioner (or supervisors that are designated) to use their judgement on when to plow and when to use sand or salt.

Mailboxes that are physically HIT by a plow or wing will be repaired or replaced by the Highway Department.  Snow damage or non-standard mailboxes will not be repaired or replaced.
