CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (CHIPPEWA COUNTY HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT NEWS RELEASE) -- Unlawful to Push Snow onto Public Highways:
The Chippewa County Highway Department would again like to remind everyone that is not only dangerous but unlawful to plow or push snow onto or across a public highway. Section 346.94(5), Wisconsin Statutes prohibits this action.
Snow left in ridges or piles on the highway create a hazard for vehicles. Snow piled on the shoulders may also create problems for equipment during normal plowing operations and increases the possibility of snow drifting across the highway in these areas.
We encourage your cooperation for the safety of all who travel the Chippewa County road and highway system.
