WAUKESHA COUNTY (WITI) — If you’re searching for a sure-fire sign of spring — you can look no further than the signs themselves! The weather has finally allowed Waukesha Public Works crews to start working on replacing and repairing road signs damaged by Old Man Winter.
Mike Glatczak with Waukesha County DPW works to repair road signs throughout the northern portion of Waukesha County. Normally, he works by himself, but because his truck was in the shop, Thursday, April 17th was a rare day the man had a partner on the job.
“When you’re fighting that four-by-six (pole) out of the ground by yourself, it’s a lot longer! You hit it with a sledgehammer. You take the pry-bar along the wooden post, wiggle the ground a little bit,” Glatczak said.
