STATELINE (WIFR) -- If you’ve driven on Stateline roads this winter, you know they’ve been tricky to maneuver with the big snow drifts. That’s why the Winnebago County Highway Department is bringing out the heavy machinery to take them out.

The snow blower is capable of moving sizeable drifts which normal snow plows can’t reach. The blower is typically used after big snow storms in rural areas and has only been taken out three times this winter. The blower also helps move snow for Rockford’s snow sculpting competition.
