Salt plan comes up short


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – An effort to offer support to local communities with declining salt supplies didn’t work out as expected.

The Ohio Department of Transportation was looking for bids on 10,000 ton increments of salt from salt companies. They planned to deliver the salt to seven different locations and help local communities that are low on salt. None of the companies replied.

ODOT was going to give the salt away, and communities would return any unused salt.

The 10-day bid period expired Friday.

Since the salt shortage, ODOT has stepped in to try to provide communities with salt free of charge.
