Motorists in south-central Missouri can rest assured that the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is prepared for the winter weather ahead.
According to District 9 Maintenance Superintendent Dan Sherbo, the region has been ready for the first snowfall since Nov. 1. “We typically prepare our equipment and supplies to be ready for an early snowfall. Our crews are trained, experienced and ready to go to get our roads safe and passable as soon as we possibly can,” said Sherbo.
The south central district has more than 150 trucks equipped to plow snow, more than 21,000 tons of salt on hand and more than 300 employees available to battle upcoming winter storms. “Our plows, de-icing materials and employees are ready to meet the challenges this winter,” said Sherbo.
