Newport Prepares For Winter Salting and Sanding

It may be a little early to start thinking about winter given these warm temperatures, but it’s never too early for town governments planning their budgets for plowing and sanding. Over in Newport, New Hampshire, the town approved more than $125,000 in sand and salt spending to cover the upcoming winter season.

The Newport Sand & Gravel Company won the bid for sand at $5 per ton, while the American Rock Salt Company got the nod for salt with a bid of around $73 per ton for 1,500 tons of salt.

Newport has approximately 65 miles of road to care for in all, with 41 of those miles being paved roads, which is around 63%.
