CROOK COUNTY ROAD DEPARTMENT WINTER MAINTENANCE AND DE-ICING
Most of us cannot put our lives on hold when it snows. That is why the Crook County Road Department strives to make winter travel as safe as possible. Most drivers have watched our snowplows clear the roads and have seen sand applied on intersections and hills. This practice has assisted with the adverse driving winter conditions that we can experience in Central Oregon. We continually strive to improve our service and efficiency for our roads within the county maintained road system during these conditions. That is why we would like to share some important facts concerning our maintenance program.
This winter the Road Department will have 14 trained personnel working to clear Crook County’s Accepted Maintained roadways of ice, slush and snow. These employees will use a variety of winter maintenance vehicles and applications including snowplows, sanders, graders, loaders, Deicing liquid distributors and pre-wetting systems.
