Governor Dannel Malloy says 22 additional cities and towns have received road salt under a Connecticut Department of Transportation program that was recently set-up to replenish municipal salt supplies diminished over a harsh 2013-14 winter season. New Milford was among the municipalities participating in this round of distributions.
More than half of Connecticut’s municipalities have now benefitted from ConnDOT’s salt distribution program. More than 17,000 tons of salt has been delivered to nearly 100 towns and other entities across the state.
In addition to local public works garages, salt has also been delivered to several state colleges and universities, rail lines and the Mashantucket and Mohegan tribal nations.
