ODOT has 240 trucks on roads this weekend to tackle winter storm

Local News

Crews with the Ohio Department of Transportation are prepared for what may be the biggest winter storm of the season this weekend with 240 trucks scheduled to treat central Ohio roads.

On Friday, they spent much of the day cleaning their trucks and loading them with salt, said Breanna Badanes, an ODOT spokeswoman.

“We’re ready to go. They prepared their trucks yesterday, fine-tuned their equipment, filled trucks with salt so we’re ready to hit the road,” Badanes said.

Crews began reporting to work at 6 a.m. on Saturday, according to Badanes.

Last weekend, she said approximately 130 trucks treated the roads across central Ohio.
