Roughly 90 plows work in ODOT Region 12 which covers is most of the Greater Cleveland area.
Each truck received a 150 point mechanical inspection from the blade in the front to the salt spreader and sprayer in the back

Northeast Ohio was clobbered last year with some pretty big snows and this year they say they're as ready as mother nature will allow.

“Last winter trucks around the state of Ohio drove around 12 million miles it’s a tremendous amount of mileage to put on these vehicles," ODOT Spokeswoman Jocelyn Clemmings said.

“It’s really important that our mechanics have done a good job to keep these trucks in working order.”

Clemming said that ODOT has added several new plow trucks to its fleet around the state including several here in District 12.
