Summer may seem like it has just wrapped up, but winter is quickly approaching. On Thursday, October 20th, work trucks from MoDOT will hit the road across the state to begin familiarizing their new drivers with their routes. With the turnover MoDOT has experienced over the past few years, with an increased of incoming new staff, drivers who will be taking care of the roads this winter will be practicing their routes from approximately 8a-3p. Be patient with them if you find yourself stuck behind one because they will be the people clearing your streets this winter. Pro-tip, want them to get to you first this year? Make sure to greet them with a smile and maybe some snacks tomorrow if you see them!
