Snowy Year added up in MN Road Salt

Posted: Updated:

Just how snowy was Minnesota's winter and spring? The road salt tells the tale.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation this week tallied the road salt usage for the winter driving season. It came in at more than 304,500 tons.

That's almost twice the amount used last year and nearly 50% above the five-year average.

Here in western Minnesota several districts ran out of salt and had to bring more in.
