Disclaimer:

The contents of the Highway Maintenance Manual reflect the policies, guideline, and practices of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (hereinafter called the Department). It is impractical, if not impossible, to compile a manual of this type which addresses or anticipates all possible situations. The information contained within this manual is offered for use in establishing goals and is not meant to be the basis for creating absolute requirements, or minimum standards, except where actual excerpts of state or federal law or administrative rules with the force of law apply. The Department recognizes that the service provider must be able to exercise discretionary judgment in the use or application of this manual.

The existence, distribution, application, and use of this manual does not constitute an acknowledgment or guarantee of outcome, expressed or implied, by the Department or its county service providers.

Certain factors, including but not limited to, weather restrictions and funding or labor shortages, may make universal, year-round compliance with the goals expressed within this manual impossible to achieve.
