Recently Aegis Corporation Field Claims Representative Laurie Miskanis-Cisewski participated in a ride along with the Portage County Highway Department while they were out clearing snowy roads.
Laurie rode along on a portion of I-39 with Portage County Highway employee Randy Piotrowski. They first cleared the drive lane, then the passing lane including the middle, shoulders and ramps. She was able to see both wings in action on the ramps.
"It's a tough job. We finished the north bound, then southbound and the ramps, with plowing first, then salt, said Laurie. "By the time the plow truck was empty on salt, the entire road needed clearing again!"
She continued, "It was a wonderful experience and I understand so much more now. To see the road and the obstacles from the perspective of our county plow drivers will help me do my job so much more effectively."
