Mild weather has eased the burden on public works

The 2020-2021 winter season has been uncommonly mild so far, and City of Havre Public Works Department has been able to take advantage of the weather in a number of ways in the past weeks and months.
Havre Public Works Director Dave Peterson said the longer the mild weather holds, the less potential there is for road damage in the coming months.
When moisture finds its way into and under the roads then freezes, it can expand and damage roadways, but because the weather has been so mild there’s very little frost in or on the ground, but Peterson said that could change in a week.
