Snow plows prep for busy Saturday


By Bonnie Shelton

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW)--With high accumulation expected across the county, the Marathon County Highway Department is gearing up to clear the streets.

Highway Commissioner Jim Griesbach said the county used 700 tons of salt during Thursday's snowfall. With more snow expected Saturday, plow drivers could use a lot more.

"Anywhere we can put it down, anywhere we can see, we do," said Griesbach.

With holiday shopping in full swing, you may need to add extra time to your commute. Also, be sure to keep a safe distance from plow drivers.

Griesbach said 33 different plows will be out and about starting tomorrow morning around four a.m.
