With the South Central Region of the Missouri Department of Transportation being spared the brunt of the recent winter storm, resources and materials are taking to the road to help neighboring regions with the snow clean up.
As a good use of time and resources, the southern regions have shifted their attention north to help battle the storm. According to MoDOT Maintenance Superintendent Dan Sherbo employees are heading north with loaded trucks to help in snow removal efforts during daytime hours. “Cleanup efforts are well under way in the South Central Region, which allows our crews to help our neighboring areas that received more snow,” said Sherbo.
A total of 12 trucks and two motor graders have been moved north from the South Central Region. “We send loaded trucks to regions just north and west of us each morning, with operators scheduled to work throughout the day,” said Sherbo. “This joint effort will aid in clearing those highways that were hit the hardest with this snow storm and help restore traffic flow,” he said.
