Roads Maintenance
The Highway Department oversees the maintenance of the roadways (32.1 miles in the township and 51.86 miles in the village), including snowplowing, for the Village and Town of Bloomfield.  The primary funding for the department is through Division of Transportation Highway Aids that is allocated to cold patching and regular road maintenance, as well as capital projects. 

The Highway Supervisor can be reached by dialing (262) 279-5783.  The department is open Monday - Friday from 7:00 AM - 3:30 PM.

SALT, SAND, SNOW, AND ICE...

The municipal salt supply is stored at Walworth County's site.  There is a new procedure this year to make an appointment 24 hours in advance of picking up salt so that a Walworth County employee is present at the facility.  We used to be able to pick up salt and sand at any time during the day as a mechanic was on the premises.  This is no longer the case.  During storm events, Walworth County is open until they have cleared their own roadways.  Bloomfield has 85 miles of road to cover so it is possible that there would be a delay in plowing for the second run if the salt facility is already closed.  That happened on Sunday, December 11th.  We apologize for the inconvenience, but please note that this is out of our control.

7.05  SNOW EMERGENCY AND PARKING RESTRICTIONS

 

(1) GENERAL RESTRICTIONS.  It shall be a violation of this code for any person to park any vehicle of any kind or description during any time of the day or night inclusive, upon any roadway, public or private, if said private road is held out to use the public, so as to cause obstruction of plowing, or block traffic, or inhibit traffic flow for emergency purposes.
