ODOT Doubles Salt Usage
The Ohio Department of Transportation has used more than 66,000 tons of salt on Central Ohio roadways this winter.
O-DOT’s Breanna Watzka said that’s almost double compared to last year.
“It was a mild winter [last year]. But compared to the winter before that we used over 75,000 tons, so it’s about average.”
Watzka added there’s about 25,000 tons of salt remaining.
“We can order more at a moment’s notice, so we are more than prepared for anything else we get this winter and then to bring us into next year.”
O-DOT has spent about $77 million statewide on salt this season.
