La Crosse, WI (WXOW) – La Crosse County is preparing for the oncoming cold and snow by readying the roads and necessary equipment.

The County Highway Department spent their day getting the salt supply, trucks, plows, and briners all ready.

They say if you need to be out as roads get slippery, keep your eyes open for their trucks so everyone stays safe.

“It’s the first snow storm. Let us get out there, [and] get it done,” says Bob Boecher, the La Crosse County Highway Shop Superintendent. “If there is anything on the road, we’ll take care of it and put down the salt or brine solution. So just give everybody the opportunity to slow down, and just take it easy.”

The first snowfall for the Coulee Region already came in October but the weather was too warm to create any roadway troubles.

As for November, the average snowfall hovers around four inches, so don’t be surprised if plows are out more than once before we make it to December!
