EASTON, Conn. -- Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Friday that Easton would be among 22 additional towns that have received road salt this week.
The towns will receive the road salt as part of a Connecticut Department of Transportation program to replenish municipal salt supplies diminished over the winter. More than half of Connecticut’s municipalities have benefited from ConnDOT’s salt distribution program.
“With another storm predicted late this weekend, we want to make sure that our cities and towns are prepared,” Malloy said in a release. “This vital program, pulled together by the DOT on very short notice, has resulted in the delivery of more than 17,000 tons of salt to nearly 100 towns and other entities across the state.”
Due to previously planned salt deliveries and contracts, "ConnDOT has had no difficulty maintaining adequate salt supplies and continues to be in a good position for the remainder of the winter season," according to the release.
