The Highway Department is responsible for plowing and salting over 815 miles of roads in unincorporated Porter County. Because they have to make at least two passes down every road (one each way), that comes to 1630 driving miles...the equivalent of plowing one lane from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Key West, Florida. For more details on the roads and streets that are plowed and salted by the Highway Department visit Who Maintains Which Roads.
The Highway Department prioritizes plowing and salting during "one time" and " continuing" snow and ice events. Read more about those priorities at Snow Plowing & Salting Process.
