State keeping an eye on road salt supply

Posted: Updated:
WESTON, Mass. (WHDH) - Whether you love winter or hate it the next winter storm eyeing New England means another healthy helping of salt to treat the roads with all these snow plows ready to roll.

The Dept. of Transportation says so far they used 450,000 tons of salt with another 150,000 tons on hand and that doesn’t include the daily deliveries to keep the piles high.

Aside from the plowing operations, the state actually uses a special solution that helps the salt stick to the roads.
For now those who drive on it can only watch and wait to see what this storm delivers.
