FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Indiana Department of Transportation is already preparing for winter.
As of Friday afternoon, every plow truck in northeast Indiana passed an annual inspection ahead of the winter snow.
Mechanics looked at everything from the plow, engine and salt spreaders.
INDOT drivers will also have winter training in the coming weeks going over what roads are priority over others.
They will also drive their routes several times before the first snow storm so they know what to expect under the snow.
An INDOT spokeswoman said it is also a good time for drivers to make sure their vehicles are ready by getting an oil change, checking tires and having an emergency kit just in case.
