IDOT Ready for Winter Roads

December 2, 2019 – The Illinois Department of Transportation says it’s well prepared for winter and highway snow removal. I-DOT is ready to plow the more than 45 thousand miles of road that will likely be hit with ice, sleet and snow this winter says spokesperson Guy Tridgell.

Last winter, IDOT used more than 600,000 tons of salt on Illinois roads.  IFOT has about 1700 employees available for snow removal and estimate they will have about 1900 temporary workers to pitch in as well.
