Every year, ADOT invites members of the media (and their audiences) to take an up-close look at all the equipment that’s involved in keeping the roads clear once the winter weather hits.

Winter isn’t officially here yet, but Arizona has already received some snowy weather this month. Don’t worry … the season’s early start hasn’t caught ADOT off guard.
