CDOT less than halfway through its winter
Even though it is starting to feel like spring, CDOT says there's about 42% of its winter remaining.
Crews work on snow and ice removal all the way through May.
Each year the department gets assigned a budget to do that based on past winters.
The Grand Junction maintenance section has only spent a little over half of its roughly twelve million dollars.
Officials say CDOT is in pretty good shape as it prepares for future storms.
However, if a maintenance section does fall short of its budget, funds can be transferred from one of the other eight in the state.
