There were a few snow plows seen on the area highways this week. Officials at the Indiana Department of Transportation have confirmed that they are prepping for the winter season.
Matt Deitchley from INDOT said that the workers at the Winamac sub-district have been doing inspections and training this week. They are making sure all of the snow plow drivers and equipment are ready for the new season. Road salt deliveries will be made in the next few days all across the district.
It was a quiet winter last year and salt supplies at the local highway garages are still in good shape.
Road projects are slowing down for this construction season. INDOT is currently working on a resurfacing project in Walkerton where portions of State Road 23 and U.S. 6 in town limits are being repaved. There are lane restrictions in that area and that project is expected to be complete in early November.
