GREEN BAY--(WFRV) Slippery and wet conditions could make for some potentially dangerous situations on the roads Tueseday evening into Wednesday morning.
To ensure motorists are safe, Highway Patrol will be out in full force.
Robert Bousley, the Brown County Public Works Operations Manager, said "We're expecting some freezing rain and snow. It's just going to make driving conditions very hazardous."
While motorists battle whats expected to be blustering snow conditions, highway department drivers will be working 16 hour shifts to ensure the roads are clear.
Bousley said "For an average driver a white knuckles experience multiply that be 1,000 times and that's what our drivers are going through."
Beginning at 2 a.m. Wednesday morning all 32 highway trucks will be out plowing.
During heavy snow days the department will go through about 600 tons of salt to ensure the roads are safe.
Lamers School Bus Operations Manager, Cindi Lawler said, "'Weather does impact our operations. It's beyond our control and we just have to keep safety in mind.'
To determine whether the roads are safe enough to take students to school, administrators keep in constant contact with the Lamers to ensure the buses can get out.
"Our policy is-- as long as the roads are open we go and the school district makes the final call about the cancellation," said Lawler.
If there is school however, parents should make sure their kids get to the school bus on time because with slippery conditions and poor visibility it's important to not run after the bus.
We may run a bit behind but our goal is always to get the kids to school on time," said Lawler.
