Entry Description
STATEHOUSE — State Representative Bob Morris (R-Fort Wayne) commends the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) for the hard work and dedication they have displayed during this harsh winter. 


"This is one of the hardest winters Indiana has seen in decades," said Rep. Morris. "INDOT has consistently helped the people of Indiana be safe on the roads, and this winter is not an exception. I want to thank them for what a great job they are doing this year in the face of tough circumstances.”


INDOT is responsible for state roads, interstates and U.S. routes including adjacent overpasses and ramps. This winter alone, INDOT trucks have covered 4.3 million miles and distributed 265,000 tons of granular salt as of Jan. 18 in an effort to keep roads safe and clean.


“Keeping our roads clean is essential to keeping our State’s economy moving forward,” said Rep. Morris. “These men and women have been working around the clock to ensure that Hoosiers can move around our State safely.” 


INDOT constantly monitors the weather and starts working before winter weather arrives. The average plow route takes between two and three hours, and INDOT staff works seven days a week with alternating 12-hour shifts.
