Highway Crews to do Their Best in Clearing Snow


The Starke County Highway snow plows will be out in full force to try and keep up with the snow that is falling and drifting in the area.

Highway Superintendent Rik Ritzler told WKVI News that if the snow gets to be too much to keep up with, then the plows will be taken off the roads. When blowing and drifting becomes an issue, it does no good for the crews to be out as roads drift shut just as soon as they pass.

If the plows are taken off the roads, crews will be out first thing in the morning – around 4 a.m.

Ritzler noted that the county plow drivers are not permitted to drive more than 12 hours a day as to not discourage their effectiveness.
