ODOT ready for another round

Crews with the Ohio Department of Transportation are stocking up after the latest winter blast.

Salt deliveries were made Wednesday under sunny skies across the eastern Ohio district. ODOT is restocking its salt barns after inventories were depleted with the latest round of snow and freezing temperatures.

Inventories are increasing daily, and enough salt is currently ordered to reach 50 percent capacity across District 11 locations, including barns in Columbiana County.

To date, ODOT District 11, which includes Belmont, Carroll, Columbiana, Harrison, Holmes, Jefferson, and Tuscarawas counties, has used 55,719 tons of salt, exceeding the region’s average salt usage of 47,063 tons.
