CLEVELAND — It’s time to open the garage door and brush off the old snow plow.

ODOT wants drivers to know it will fine-tune its equipment over the next few weeks to make sure the plows and spreaders are ready before they hit the road.

Repairs and tests were done before the equipment was put into storage in the spring.

ODOT said once the storm hits, 1,700 plows and 3,000 operators will be ready to tackle the roads.
