Snow RemovalZero Fatalities, by Becky Parker.
Last week it seemed like it would never stop snowing. Thankfully this week’s commutes along the Wasatch Front have been a little easier on motorist’s nerves. For weeks like last week though we have 510 plows ready throughout the state and our crews make every effort to keep the roads clear and safe. Here is what they have used through January 28.
- 94,924 tons of salt
- 9,918 cubic yards of grit
- 69,330 gallons of liquid deicer
- 2,621 snow plow blades
- 388,940 gallons of fuel
- 87,287 equipment hours
As far a budget, it costs an average of $1,000,000 per storm.
