The Ohio Department of Transportation is always on-call to respond to all types of weather conditions, including floods, tornados, mudslides, along with snow and ice storms – and with winter just around the corner, ODOT is making sure all snow fighting equipment is ready to go.
Over the next several weeks, ODOT District 11 will conduct random 150-point inspections to repair and fine-tune snow removal equipment as part of county-by-county Equipment Readiness Inspections.
Since making their debut last winter, ODOT has continued adding green and white lights to its existing amber lights. The Department has completed the upgrade on 70 percent of its fleet. The color combination has proven more visible than amber lights alone. All trucks will have the green, white, and amber color combinations by the end of this year.
