TDOT to Adjust Snow and Ice Strategy

 

Diminished Salt Supplies Force Shift in Tactics

Tennessee Department of TransportationNashville, TN – An earlier, colder and snowier winter season has the Tennessee Department of Transportation implementing new strategies to conserve resources during snow and ice removal operations. Winter weather started affecting Tennessee roads in November of last year and TDOT’s arsenal of salt is being used at a faster rate than our supplier can replenish reserves.

In the meantime, it will take our maintenance forces longer to clear all routes of snow and ice as we try to conserve salt.”
