JEFFERSON CITY, MO - With two months still remaining in this winter season, the Missouri Dept. of Transportation has used nearly twice as much road salt to remove snow and ice this winter as it did all of last year. MoDOT has already spent more than $26 million on snow and ice removal.
"Missouri was hit with one of the worst winter storms in recent history at the end of November, and then severe ice and snow storms in January," said MoDOT Director Pete Rahn.
