Trucks from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) post west of Celina are in the process of being "winterized," as equipment from inside each is emptied onto the pavement. Fine tuning of snow and ice removal equipment and testing, known as Operational Readiness, takes place in October and November at ODOT posts throughout Ohio. The statewide agency also implemented a Smart Salt Strategy campaign to remind motorists to take it slow in ice and snow as the department becomes more efficient with salt due to the high cost this year.
