MODOT says savings from salt use means more for summer projects


The Missouri Department of Transportation had crews on the highways overnight but say they'll have plenty of salt to carry over to next year.

Around 40 trucks filtered out across Southwest Missouri last night armed with salt.  Overall it's been a mild winter.

MODOT says that means more money for summer projects.  They currently has 2,500 tons of salt on hand for what's left of this winter.

What remains will be saved for the next season, meaning more money will remain to spend on other things, like asphalt for summer projects.

Last night's snow and ice created a few problems in Labette County, Kansas. During a two-hour period authorities responded to a total of 16 highway accidents.

Of those, five were on U.S. 400 at the Neosho River Bridge east of Parsons.
