A state-wide drill in preparation of the upcoming winter weather has been completed by MoDot. Click to hear KMZU’s Mike Stone speak with State Maintenance Engineer Beth Wright:
The drill was held because MoDot has gone through a major reorganization and reduction of facilities, and they wanted to make sure all the truck drivers knew their new routes and MoDot knew how long they take to travel. Wright said they found a few problems, but will be able to fix them. One issue they identified was not all of the truck communication radios had been reprogrammed to the new frequency.
