SDDOT prepping for the winter season

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The South Dakota Transportation Commission got an update on the winter maintenance plans for the state D.O.T.

Operations Manager Craig Smith says they got results of a survey of their performance from winter drivers.

Smith says they will have the same snow plow hours as in past years.

Smith says they have about the same winter budget as last year.

Smith says one limiting factor in snowplow operations may be the number of drivers they can hire.
