17 Trucks and 9 Road Graders Keep the Roads Open
Olmsted has seventeen trucks and nine road graders; all of them are used to plow snow and keep the county roads open. 520 miles of county roads and 270 miles of township roads are plowed by the county. The County road crews have been working in this snow season to keep the roads open and safe. Please do your part by keeping a safe distance from the plows.
