The Kewaunee County Sheriff's Department is asking drivers to be patient with mud on the roads and farmers to give them a call if there's an excess amount due to machinery coming off of wet fields when harvesting crops.

Mud on the Road - Please Be Patient

We have all noticed the unusual amount of rain that we have received this year and it is meeting up with that time of year our farms are going to need to start getting crops off the fields by whatever means necessary. In short, there is going to be mud and machinery on the roads and we are asking everyone to please show some patience when traveling on our roads.

With that, we do have a request for the farmers: Please give us a call and let us know where and when you’ll be hauling, especially if there will be an exceptional amount of mud on the roads.
