 July 20 2017 Overview Briefing
Road and maintenance workers are doing their best to minimize motorist inconvenience. No matter how it seems to the motorist, road workers and flaggers are striving to improve traffic safety conditions, and it is up to the driver to be alert, aware, and responsive.  Summer need not signal rising fatality rates on the highways if travelers and workers practice care, courtesy, safety and patience.  Remember, practice safety, don't learn it by accident.
Watch for Cone Zoned areas where our Walworth County crews are working to complete the following summer season maintenance activities:
          - Bridge deck repairs          - Crack sealing repairs          - Culvert repairs & ditch maintenance
          - Grinding & paving            - Mowing of Vegetation          - Installation of raised pavement markers
