This latest storm has kept V-DOT crews busy.

((
This latest storm will most likely be another costly one for the Virginia Department of Transportation...
Consider this---


Over the past few months, VDOT has used more than five- thousand tons of salt to treat roads in Montgomery, Pulaski and Giles counties.
The price tag for that comes to about 250- thousand dollars.

Stone used to treat the roads is also costly...
For the three counties, VDOT has spent between 60 and 70- thousand dollars this winter.
